LA LA, MAKING IT IN L.A.

USA, 1979 (MIFF 1980, Programme 35)

Director: Caroline Mouris, Frank Mouris

55 struggling performers — actors, singers, dancers, musicians and comedians — speak directly to the audience about their hopes and dreams in Hollywood. The film is a tongue-in-cheek, yet totally documentary peek at a few of the many thousands who flock to L.A. to make it big in show biz. The constant humour is in how people express themselves.
