Hey, Toronto! Win A Double Pass To Catch A Rare Screening Of Roger Christian's BLACK ANGEL On The Big Screen With In-Person Q&A!
Back in 1980 famed Star Wars art director Roger Christian made the move to the director's chair with a 25 minute short film titled Black Angel. George Lucas was enough of a fan of the film that he tied it to the release of The Empire Strikes Back in the UK, Australia and Scandinavia but despite the famous backing it was never released on any home video format and, in fact, was believed to be lost entirely until a 35mm print turned up in December of 2011.
Well, it's getting a release now. Canadian outfit Juice Distribution will be making Black Angel available on iTunes and other VOD platforms around the world on May 20th and to celebrate they've got Christian himself to attend a big screen showing of the film at Toronto's Royal Cinema on May 20th at 7pm, after which local critic Richard Crouse will host a Q&A with the director. And we've got two double passes to give away.
For your chance to claim a double pass simply email me here and give me the name of the Monty Python film on Christian's resume. Yes, the guy responsible for the sets on Star Wars was also art director for Monty Python. And Alien, for that matter. Nah, he didn't shape my teen years at all ... winners will be drawn at random.
