Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about the film!
American Movie is a 1999 documentary directed by Chris Smith. The film chronicles the real 1996-1997 making of Coven, an independent horror film directed by an independent filmmaker named Mark Borchardt. Produced for the purpose of raising capital for another film that Borchardt intends to make, the epic Northwestern, Coven (which Borchardt mispronounces with a long ‘o’) suffers from numerous setbacks, including poor financing, a lack of planning, Borchardt’s burgeoning alcoholism, and the ineptitude of the friends and family Borchardt hires to staff the production team. The documentary follows Borchardt’s filmmaking process from script to screen, and is interspersed with footage from both developing projects. The film was a critical success upon its debut and went on to win the Grand Jury prize for Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, and has since gone on to become a cult film.
