A MIGHTY WIND
2003, Warner Bros., 91 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Guest

This uniquely touching mockumentary reunites the team from BEST IN SHOW and WAITING FOR GUFFMAN to tell the story of three folk groups from the '60s who, inspired by the death of their former manager, reunite for a memorial concert in New York City’s Town Hall. Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara are Mitch and Mickey, once the sweethearts of folk music until their bitter separation; Spinal Tap alumni Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer are classic folk trio The Folksmen; and Parker Posey, John Michael Higgins and Jane Lynch anchor a color-coordinated, harmonizing “neuftet” - The New Main Street Singers.

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION
2006, Warner Bros., 86 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Guest

Christopher Guest turns the camera on Hollywood for a hilarious look at the making of an independent movie and its cast as they become victims of the dreaded awards buzz. Film-within-a-film HOME FOR PURIM began as an intimate period drama about a Jewish family's turbulent reunion on the occasion of the dying matriarch's favorite holiday. But when Internet-generated rumors suggest cast members Catherine O'Hara, Harry Shearer and Parker Posey may have a shot at awards, the production takes a turn as everyone from reporters (Fred Willard) to agents (Eugene Levy) to studio chiefs (Ricky Gervais) smell the sudden potential for a sleeper hit.
