The Eyes Of Orson Welles

Filmmaker Mark Cousins dives deep into the visual world of legendary director and actor Orson Welles to reveal a portrait of the artist as he’s never been seen before – through his own eyes.

Granted exclusive access to hundreds of private drawings and paintings by Orson Welles, sketched with his own hand, painted with his own brush. The Eyes of Orson Welles brings vividly to life the passions, politics and power of this brilliant 20th-century showman, and explores how the genius of Welles still resonates today in the age of Trump, more than 30 years after his death.
