So the Channel will have the full edition of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, supplements and such, three and a half weeks before the disc release, as in tomorrow. That's a pretty nice trick.

The Juniper Tree is the one starring a very young Björk and it's pretty great, bleak and silent and witchy.

Yeah, I recall seeing that on VHS as a youngster. It stays with you, or at least it stayed with me.

Simon H., Monday, 25 November 2019 20:55 (ten months ago) link

Oh wow, they've also got Aves, Keene's short film she made after the Juniper Tree... not sure there's been any way to easily see that until now.

The Juniper Tree is the one starring a very young Björk and it's pretty great, bleak and silent and witchy.

not VERY young! her first album was recorded when she was 11, and she had another five out as an adult by the time she made the movie (at 25)
