Directed by Mike Meyers

United States 2013 85 mins.

Mike Myers (Austin Powers, Wayne’s World) makes his directorial debut with this witty, loving tribute to his friend Shep Gordon, a legendary talent manager who has built his career representing an eclectic range of artists, from rock legends Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd, Blondie, and Anne Murray to celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse. Myers reveals a man who has embraced his dualities: a hard-driving dealmaker who wants everyone to be happy and a rock-and-roll hedonist who yearns for family. But it is Gordon’s crisis of faith with fame (and his philosophical approach to his Jewish/Buddhist identity) rather than the incredible showbiz story that constitutes the film’s moving portrait.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
