We are pleased to welcome back film scholar Josh Glick to facilitate another thought-provoking Salon – this time focused on how Hollywood’s Mockumentary genre (think of films like This is Spinal Tap and Borat or television shows like The Office) draws from the film language and style of documentary.
Although this is a free event, because of limited seating (no more than 20 participants), an RSVP is appreciated. RSVP to this Event https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?oeidk=a07e5y46g9u2b580a62&oseq=
