Z-Channel - a magnificent obsession Z-Channel - eine wunderbare Besessenheit( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Porträt des 1974 gegründeten pay-TV-Senders Z-Channel und seines charismatischen Gründers Jerry Harvey, ein Film-Enthusiast, der auch Programmdirektor des Senders wurde, der ausschließlich Spielfilme ausstrahlte. Z-Channel entwickelte sich rasch zur wichtigsten Seh-Schule für eine ganze Genration junger Regisseure, die in diesem die Bedeutung des Senders unterstreichen. Der Dokumentarfilm ist mehr als eine Chronik der Ereignisse, sondern eine Hommage an den Sender, der sich auch bei der Rekonstruktion von verstümmelten Filmen einen Namen machte, und seinen Gründer, der sich auch nicht scheute, europäische Klassiker ins Programm zu nehmen. Als die pay-TV-Konkurrenz immer mächtiger wurde und Z-Channel in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten geriet, erschoss Harvey seine Frau und sich mit einem Revolver, den ihm Sam Peckingpah geschenkt hatte, am 11. April 1988. Ein Jahr später hörte auch der Sender auf zu existieren. [film-dienst]
