The Eyes of Orson Welles

International Competition

(Regno Unito / 2018 / 110’)

“There’s only one person in the world who decides what I’m going to do, and that’s me.” This is the attitude of Charles Foster Kane, the unforgettable main character of Citizen Kane, the movie that amazed the world in 1941. Thanks to an exclusive access to private Orson Welles’ archive material, director Mark Cousins examines a legend: looked through his own eyes, painted with his own hand. Produced by Michael Moore, The Eyes of Orson Welles rediscover one of the most brilliant authors of the XXth century and explore his genius that, thirty years after his death, shines today in Trump’s era.
