Synopsis : Three features. 'Waiting For Guffman', 'Best In Show' and 'A Mighty Wind', a documentary-style comedy about three folk groups from the 1960s who get together for a reunion concert in New York in memory of a recently deceased folk manager.
Waiting For Guffman (1996): The sometimes dry, sometimes bubbling satire of Middle America which chronicles Corky Corkoran's efforts to put on a spectacle commemorating the town of Blain's 150th anniversary. A mockumentary style film, Corky drafts an odd assortment of local talent to bring his historical revue to life, including the local dentist and a travel agent couple. The film spoofs the 'artistic' pretensions of Corky and his cast in an affectionate and knowing style.
Best In Show (2000): The tension is unmistakable, the excitement is mounting and the heady scent of competition is in the air at the prestigious Mayflower Dog Show. Director Christopher Guest takes a hilarious look at dog show participants (and the pooches who love them). Meet the contestants - a fly fishing bloodhound owner, Shih-Tzu- doting partners, squabbling yuppie lawyers, a bimbo trophy wife and her poodle handler and a married couple who dream up little ditties about terriers - all fighting for the 'Best In Show' prize. A barking mad mockumentary.
A Mighty Wind (2003): This mockumentary takes you behind the scenes of a reunion of the 1960's folk trio the Folksmen as they prepare for a show at The Town Hall to memorialize a recently deceased concert promoter
