New York City's underground Black Party is the stuff of legend. Based on ancient druidic rituals, the film brings the annual gay fetish extravaganza to life as an allegorical fairy tale starring Buck Angel and a cast of thousands. True to its subject, it's the movie you can dance to.
Schwarzwald stems from the German-inspired ''twisted Disney'' theme of the 2006 Black Party. Kimmel, a noted experimental theater director, was hired to bring a crew to film the party, where cameras are traditionally shunned. The purpose was to project live video feeds of the party's sexually charged shows from various stages throughout Roseland Ballroom onto screens around the massive dance floor. ''[After the event,] as we started looking at the footage and realized what we had, it meshed with this idea I've had for a long time to take music video to the next step,'' says Kimmel. ''Could you sustain a feature-length narrative without words, only with music and images? Could you create a parallel experience, a digital experience of this 27-hour event?''
Transsexual porn star Buck Angel, that year's headline performer at the Black Party, was cast in Schwarzwald, which became an expressionist, allegorical fairy tale connecting the decades-long tradition of the Black Party, always held at the end of March to help usher in Spring, to its ancient roots in Druidic rites. This was a time when, as Kimmel notes, ''men danced together with men under the stars for hours, getting into this incredible spiritual state, getting into this trance state.'' The film's narrative is a story about finding love and acceptance in a more advanced community.
