The Eyes of Orson Welles, Dir. Mark Cousins, UK, 2018, 115 mins
Granted exclusive access to hundreds of private drawings and paintings by Orson Welles, director and film historian Mark Cousins dives deep into the visual world of this legendary director and actor, to reveal a portrait of the artist as he’s never been seen before.
Executive produced by Michael Moore, The Eyes of Orson Welles brings vividly to life the passions, politics and power of this brilliant 20th-century showman, through his own eyes and sketched with his own hand. Narrated by Cousins, this love letter to Welles explores how his work continues to resonate today, more than 30 years after his death.
