      At some point you would have thought New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, Director who was an aggressive prosecutor of prostitution rings, might have written a note to self: Do Not Buy Hookers (no matter how high class). But no, alas, an FBI sting of a pricey escort service led to Spitzer’s fall and resignation after barely a year in the guv’s chair. Unfortunately for us small people, Spitzer was one of the good guys: he had built a career tackling excesses in the banking industry (before anyone else did), as well as going after environmental polluters and other baddies. Oscar- winning director Alex Gibney pieces together the rise and fall of Spitzer, and the long line of powerful enemies he left in his testosterone-fuelled wake. Accompanied by a breezy soundtrack, a range of entertaining interviews – including his chief nemeses, favourite call girl, and Spitzer himself – fill us in on one spectacular fall from grace.

          Peter Kenworthy, Executive Director of Mountainfilm in Telluride, interviews Academy Award winning director Alex Gibney. This is from season one of Minds of Mountainfilm. I'm a big fan of Alex Gibney and had set up an interview with him at Sundance in 2008 for his film The Life and Times of Hunter S. Thompson. We did an impromptu interview for Taxi to the Dark Side, which was good, but I think this one is much better.

                    ART AND ADVOCACY Saturday, April 16th, 2011 As documentarians struggle to finance their films, organizations with advocacy agendas become a rich source of funding. Does this present a dilemma for filmmakers who might not have the capital to follow less agenda-based subjects? What is more important, the narrative power of a film or the issue it highlights? Is the purpose of the documentary to tell a compelling narrative or to bring to light an issue that filmmakers feel is neglected? Panelists include: Alex Gibney, filmmaker Magic Trip, Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer; Steve James, filmmaker The Interrupters, Hoop Dreams; DA Pennebaker, filmmaker Don’t Look Back, The War Room; Diane Weyerman, Executive Vice President, Documentary Films, Participant Media
