IT’S ALL TRUE
Sunday, January 25
(1993, Richard Wilson, Myron Meisel & Bill Krohn) Reconstruction of Welles’ aborted 1942 South American project, with his color footage of Carnival in Rio, the “blessing of the bull,” and the near-complete semi-documentary story of four fishermen’s 2,000-mile sea voyage to Rio on a tiny raft. Full title: It’s All True: Based on an Unfinished Film by Orson Welles. Approx. 87 min. 35mm.
“A LONG, SEDUCTIVE FOOTNOTE TO A CINEMA LEGEND.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
“What little there was looked stunning. In this documentary, happily, there's much more to show.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)
