On Angel Wings DVD

| DVD

Rachel is eight and for the first time is allowed to join her brothers and sister to visit their grandfather - Amos, as he carries out his annual ritual of a night in the hills, where he worked as a young shepherd boy. Grandfather is delighted to see the children and a special bond is established between him and Rachel. He tells the how she reminds him of a magical night; he then proceeds to recount it. He explains how, ahead of the other shepherds protecting their flock with him, he is flown away by the Angel Gabriel, to be the first visitor to the newly-born Christ... child. This magical re-working of the nativity by the leading writer Michael Morpurgo is rich with human poignancy as we share this very special experience. [show more]

Dave Unwin writes and directs this festive animated short. On a cold winter night, old shepherd Amos (voice of Oliver Walsh) tells his eight-year-old granddaughter Rachel (Maya Gerber) of the magical night in his childhood when he was allowed to visit the newly born Jesus Christ. After he is visited by the Angel Gabriel (Dominic Cooper), the young shepherd travels to Bethlehem to visit the new king.
