Cinema Verite 1 Dec 2018 - 18:50 -------------------------------------------------- Title : The Eyes of Orson Welles -------------------------------------------------- 115’, Northern Ireland, 2018 Text : Director: Mark Cousins Screenplay: Mark Cousins Cinematographer: Mark Cousins Editor: Timor Langer Producer: Adam Dawtrey, Mary Belars, & Mark Cousins Distribution/ sales: Dogwoof Synopsis Orson Welles trained as an artist before he become an actor and director, and continued to draw and paint throughout his career - character sketches, storyboards, 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 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.
