The Black Angel Rides Again

A few years ago I wrote a piece about Roger Christian’s legendary short film The Black Angel.  The film has been ‘lost’ for most of the thirty-four years since its release, but – good news !- there is now a restored print. It premiered at the Mill Valley Film Festival in the US recently, and will be screened as part of the Glasgow Film Festival on 27th February. I can’t make it, unfortunately, but it looks as if there are plans to release it via Netflix and ITunes next year (so I have a whole year in which to find out how Netflix works).

Here’s a more detailed article about The Black Angel from Ars Technica.
