Her Master`s Voice
In this intimate mockumentary and study of grief, acclaimed ventriloquist Nina Conti takes the `bereaved` puppets of her recently passed mentor Ken Campbell on a pilgrimage to Venthaven - an American resting place for puppets of dead ventriloquists. Co-produced by Christopher Guest (This Is Spinal Tap). An eccentric maverick of the British Theatre, Campbell was Conti`s lover, mentor, and inspiration, despite a 34-year age gap between the 60-year-old and his 26-year-old protégé. Along the way she gets to know her latex and wooden travelling partners, and with them de-constructs herself and her lost love in this ventriloquial docu-mockumentary requiem.
