In our last episode, we watched a documentary. This episode, we watched a mockumentary! We showed Jena a film by a group of gifted comedians who have sort of mastered the genre. A Mighty Wind is a fabulously funny film about folk music. Created by Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy, it has a smart approach to the topic and even manages to be poignant every now and again. It’s one of Tim’s favorite movies. We hope it will be one of yours as well!
Our next episode will be about The Maltese Falcon!
