Orson Welles and “It’s All True!”

Request Program

Welles was perhaps the most fascinating filmmaking maverick in Hollywood who was, in the words of Martin Scorsese, “responsible for inspiring more people to be film directors than anyone else in history of the cinema.”  This presentation shows images from his career plus focusses a complex story of his ill-fated attempts to make an anthology film about the life and culture of South America and concludes with an excerpt of one of the film’s unfinished segments from rediscovered original footage. The entire movie may be shown contingent on paying an extra fee for performance rights.  Please contact Jeffrey Allison for details.
