“Oscar-winner Chuck Workman’s (famed for his Academy Award clip montages and iconic trailers) impressive, comprehensive documentary tells the tragic, extraordinary story of Orson Welles, a great filmmaking genius whose masterpieces were interspersed with films compromised by studio intervention or never completed at all. Workman tells Welles’s story through a wealth of interviews with the director and actor, an impressive assortment of clips, and testimonies by luminaries including Martin Scorsese, Peter Bogdanovich, George Lucas, Walter Murch, and Steven Spielberg.”—Telluride Film Festival.
MAGICIAN: THE ASTONISHING LIFE AND WORK OF ORSON WELLES screens Saturday, January 2 at 4:30pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum). The film is showing as part of our Orson Welles at 100 series.
