Breaking Glass pictures have announced the March 5th release of Satan's Angel: Queen of the Fire Tassels.
From the press release:
Angel Walker rose through the ranks of the burlesque scene, bringing to the stage a delectable mix of sex, passion, and the fires of Hell. In Queen of the Fire Tassels, Director Josh Dragotta documents her love for the craft and commitment to the preservation of burlesque.
Angel Walker is Satan's Angel, a legend in the world of burlesque who travels the Globe with her wife Vic to entertain her legions of devoted fans. This riveting documentary explores Angel and Vic's private and public life, and enlists a collection of today's hottest burlesque stars sharing their insight on Angel's influence to an art form that has withstood the test of time. Angel's legacy is filled with San Francisco counter culture, Las Vegas stage door johns, and a sexuality she refused to closet.
She has amassed four decades worth of fascinating, colorful, and behind the scenes stories as she's traveled the world performing the art of burlesque. From nights with the Rat Pack to tripping with the Doors, from traveling with Bob Hope in the USO to coming out of retirement to huge crowds, Satan's Angel: Queen of the Fire Tassels gives audiences a candid glimpse into burlesque's hottest and most outspoken legend.
Satan's Angel: Queen of the Fire Tassels received audience acclaim at a number of film festivals including Outfest, Helsinki International Film Festival, Austin Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival, Scottsdale International Film Festival, Corona Cork Film Festival and Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.
The DVD will come complete with extended interviews, promotional footage, a photo gallery and more. Breaking Glass Co-President Richard Ross said, "Angel has had a spectacular career, and her stories of life as a burlesque superstar from glory days to tarnished decline to respectable rebirth are simply astounding. After watching this, you'll want much more of Angel and thankfully the DVD extras provide that!"
Hot damn, if the cover doesn't sell you, the trailer below will. I bet this lady has stories to tell.
