Silly run, don’t silly walk, to this behind-the-scenes documentary following the five surviving Pythons as they put together their first live stage show in more than thirty years. Directors Roger Graef and James Rogan gleefully tag along as flies on the wall for the Pythons’ rehearsals, offering a rare glimpse into the group’s behind-the-scenes dynamics and preshow anxieties. Using rare and never-before-seen archival footage from their early stage performances, Graef and Rogan lay the foundation for the Python’s modern show with a look back at the origins of some of their most beloved sketches. As the Pythons themselves are quick to point out, they’ll be dead soon, so do yourself a favor and enjoy them while you can in this hilarious tribute to some of the world’s most often-quoted comedy legends. Scheduled to Appear: Holly Gilliam.
