The Tribeca Film Festival in New York is hosting a special 40th anniversary screening of the cult classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Organizers somehow managed to get the surviving members of the Python troupe together for the event.
In addition, they will be at a screening of Monty Python - The Meaning of Live, a new documentary by Roger Graef and James Rogan about the group. The film follows their history, right up until their last live shows at the O2 in London last summer.
Tribeca will also screen the Pythons’ other two feature films, Life of Brian and The Meaning of Life.
Monty Python was last together in July 2014, when they performed in London. The shows were nostalgic trips through the group’s past, including clips with the late Graham Chapman and archival footage. Gilliam also contributed new animation.
The final show was screened in theaters worldwide. It was also released on DVD and Blu-ray.
