THE EYES OF ORSON WELLES Unclassified 18+
The director of The Story of Film gets to the heart of greatness in this whimsical and heartfelt examination of one of the 20th century’s greatest showmen – the man behind Citizen Kane, Orson Welles.
Mark Cousins (What Is This Film Called Love, MIFF 2013) has crafted one of the defining works about Orson Welles, having been granted exclusive access to the private collection of correspondence, paintings and drawings from the great actor, writer and director. Alongside these sketches and amateur art, Cousins ties Welles’s story into that of the modern age and proving his continued relevance in an age of rising fascism, bullying and (F is for) fake news.
The Eyes of Orson Welles is a visionary interpretation of Welles’ life and career by one of modern cinema’s most singular documentary filmmakers.
"Intriguing and illuminating ... mordantly whimsical, light on its feet and fleet of mind." – The Hollywood Reporter
