Trickery. Deceit. Magic. In this free-form documentary, the legendary filmmaker gleefully engages the central preoccupation of his career: the tenuous line between truth and illusion, art and lies. Orson Welles uses examples from his own career, art forger Elmyr de Hory, & the Howard Hughes biography hoax of the 1970s.
