President Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign introduced the world to two political newcomers: campaign manager James Carville and communications director George Stephanopoulos. Filmmakers Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker followed the two, and their documentary The War Room (1993) is a thrilling account of a wild election campaign. It screens in the New Orleans Film Festival (12:30 p.m. Sun., Oct. 17, New Orleans Museum of Art; www.neworleansfilmsociety.org).
