TERRY ZWIGOFF (Writer/Director) traces his career in film back to 1978 when he found a rare 1934 recording by an unknown Chicago blues musician. A musician himself, Zwigoff was so impressed by this old 78 that he began what was to become two years of detective work to discover who the artist was and what his life had been like. Louie Bluie, a documentary film released in 1985, was the result.

Zwigoff's next film, Crumb, won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and became a runaway success with audiences and critics alike, appearing on over 100 "Ten Best" lists and being chosen Best Film of 1995 by a dozen major film critics. It won every single film critics award for Best Documentary of 1995, including the NY, LA, and National Society of Film Critics Award. (The later also voted it runner-up to Babe as Best Picture of the Year.) Crumb became the third-highest grossing documentary film ever made.
