We will be joined by director Mark Cousins for a Q&A following the 17:50 screening on Fri 17 Aug.
Welles trained as an artist before he become an actor and director, and continued to draw and paint throughout his career – character sketches, storyboards, set designs, pictures of the people and places that inspired him. These artworks are a sketchbook of his life, and most have never been seen outside his family and close friends. For the first time, award-winning director Mark Cousins (Stockholm, My Love) has been granted access to this treasure trove of imagery, to make a film about what he finds there – the story of Welles’ visual thinking, never before told.
The Eyes of Orson Welles will screen from Fri 17 Aug on general release.
