  • Description

    2015 marks the centenary year of the remarkable Orson Welles, and this insightful documentary explores the enigma and polymath that was Welles. Jean-Luc Godard once said of this exceptional actor, writer and director: “All of us will always owe him everything.”

    Directed by critically-acclaimed documentary maker, Chuck Workman, Magician divides Welles’ life into four chapters, with Workman portraying him as an artist who never stopped working throughout his career, but whose unconventional approach ensured he was much misunderstood by Hollywood.

    Magician is a montage, featuring scenes from almost every existing Welles film - from Hearts of Age to rarely-seen clips from his final unfinished films such as Don Quixote - as well as his television and commercial work.  This is an essential film not just for fans of the great Orson Welles, but anyone interested in the magic of cinema.

    Cast and Crew:

    Director: Chuck Workman (Superstar: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol)

    Stars: Peter Bogdanovich (The Last Picture Show, Paper Moon) and Orson Welles (Citizen Cane, The Third Man)
