Welles performs various kinds of magic while considering questions of art, artifice and authorship in a brilliantly inventive essay film that juxtaposes his own colourful history with the case of celebrated art forger Elmyr de Hory and his unreliable biographer Clifford Irving. A witty, wise and playfully mischievous meditation on numerous aspects of creativity, the film also provides philosophical food for thought about cinema itself.

The screening on Wednesday 9 March will be introduced by Programmer-at-large, Geoff Andrew.
