Her Master's Voice

Poster for 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. Audience Award-winner at SXSW Film Festival 2012. Co-produced by Christopher Guest (This Is Spinal Tap). More

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.

Self-indulgent, luvvie-duvvie, rambling, a bit weird. It's also – also weirdly – touching, brave, honest, imaginative, self-aware, hilarious.
