Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession

One of America's first pay cable stations, the Los Angeles-based Z Channel featured an offbeat lineup of indie films, international classics and Hollywood favourites. Through rare clips and interviews with such famous fans as Quentin Tarantino, Robert Altman, James Woods, and Jim Jarmusch, this magnificent documentary examines how programming chief Jerry Harvey rescued the channel from obscurity--and how his personal demons led to its demise.
