We are excited to announce our 2014 Boone Dawdle Film, An Honest Liar.
James “The Amazing” Randi rose to fame first as a magician and then as a debunker of fraudulent psychics. His rivalry with Uri Gellar flourished in front of Johnny Carson’s cameras, igniting a national discussion. This expertly crafted film goes beyond typical historical fact-collecting, though, rejecting adulation to present a clear-eyed take on Randi’s professional and personal life and uncovering a present-tense story unknown until now. It’s funny, exciting, and, ultimately, even a bit of a love story. The perfect film, then, for a hot summer’s night and the perfect capstone to T/F 2014.
Co-director Justin Weinstein in person to answer your questions. Tickets for the Boone Dawdle are on sale now.
