7/19 A Mighty Wind
This TUESDAY, JULY 19th, we will be reading the 2003 film A MIGHTY WIND by Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy.
A MIGHTY WIND is a 2003 American mockumentary comedy film about a folk music reunion concert in which three folk bands reunite for a television performance for the first time in decades. The film was directed, co-written and composed by Christopher Guest. The film is thought to reference the 2003 tribute concert to folk music producer Harold Leventhal that reunited several of the folk groups that Leventhal had managed. More broadly, the film is a parody of the American folk music revival of the early 1960s and its personalities. Guest co-stars and reunites many of his company of actors from “This Is Spinal Tap,” “Waiting for Guffman,” and “Best in Show” for this film.
