Lost Angel: The Genius of Judee Sill

The never-before-told story of folk-rock icon Judee Sill, who in just two years went from living in a car to appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone. The documentary charts her troubled adolescence through her meteoric rise in the music world and early tragic death. Featuring Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Fleet Foxes, David Geffen, and more.

“The definitive documentary of a brilliant, innovative early’70s singer-songwriter.”


“An affecting film around which admirers and newcomers alike can gather to bask in the unique beauty of Judee’s work, and to follow the similarly distinctive trajectory of her painful and abbreviated life.”

The Wall Street Journal

“This forgotten music just has to be heard.”

The Guardian

“Elegantly using the limited amount of original material available to them, the filmmakers have created an immersive biographical documentary that tells the overlooked troubadour’s story as if told by Sill herself. In a word, their technique is genius.”

The Globe and Mail

“A great piece of lost classic rock history.”
