Film Fest Gent - Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles

Divided into biographical segments, Chuck Workman's film intercuts archive interviews with clips of Welles' work from stage, screen and radio. It's a exhilarating ride: from the national panic which greeted the 'War of the Worlds' broadcast to the butchering of 'The Magnificent Ambersons', and Welles' subsequent status as an accidentally path-breaking indie filmmaker.
