Black Angel

Roger Christian was a set decorator for Star Wars Episode IV. Christian’s work impressed George Lucas enough that he gave Christian the go ahead to turn his fantasy script into a short film, which would screen before Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. The film, titled Black Angel, was only screened in a few cinemas in 1980, and was thought lost until negatives of the film were found and restored.

The film has since been uploaded to YouTube, with a special introduction from the director himself.
