Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon
Mike Myers documents the astounding career of Hollywood insider, the loveable Shep Gordon, who fell into music management by chance after moving to Los Angeles straight out of college, and befriending Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix. He later went on to manage chefs such as Emeril Lagasse, ushering in the era of celebrity chefs on television. Stuffed with fantastic archive footage the film traces Shep’s transformation from the 1970’s hedonist to today’s practicing Buddhist yearning for a family of his own. Mike Myers directorial debut proves his ability to tell stories both on camera and behind it. Packed with high-profile interviews with stars such as Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone and Willie Nelson, Supermensch is a frank portrait with both humor and heart.
