LOST FILM



Devonshire

Info:

A polaroid photograph by William Stout taken during the Fantasy Faire & Magic Music Festival at Devonshire Downs in Northridge, CA captures a festival attendee operating a 16mm camera. Color footage from this festival is known from the documentary Aquarius Rising, however it does not include performance footage of The Doors. There is a possibility this cameraman was the director or a crew member of the documentary, but details are unknown, and the particular filmwork shown in the above photograph is now presumed lost.
