PROFESSIONAL AMATEURS: MOCKING THE TRUTH

TFF 2006
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE PROFESSIONAL AMATEURS: MOCKING THE TRUTH [TFF 2006]
Straddling the line between truth and fiction, mockumentaries often reveal more about their subject than the films that claim to document them. It's funny because it's so true. As reality television and documentaries dominate American popular culture they ripen for satire and social commentary. From celebrity to dog shows to politics...nothing is safe from ridicule. Michael McKean (This is Spinal Tap) Lewis Lapham (American Ruling Class, Harper's Magazine) Jeff Goldblum (Pittsburgh, The Fly) Bob Balaban (Waiting for Guffman, A Mighty Wind) and Ed Helms (The Daily Show) join a discussion moderated by Jim Kelly (Managing Editor, Time).
