Trickery. Deceit. Magic. In F for Fake, a free-wheeling, spirited documentary by Orson Welles, the legendary filmmaker (and self-described charlatan) gleefully reengages with the central preoccupation of his career: the tenuous lines between illusion and truth, art and lies. Beginning with portraits of the world- renowned art forger Elmyr de Hory and his equally devious biographer, Clifford Irving, Welles embarks on a dizzying journey that simultaneously exposes and revels in fakery and fakers of all stripes—not the least of whom is Welles himself. Charming and inventive, F for Fake is an inspired prank and a clever examination of the essential duplicity of cinema.
On display at Pictura Gallery this summer is a collection of magic-themed darkroom prints by photographer, Carol Golemboski. She conjures the golden age of magic, with visual tricks and illusions folded into the mystique of the analog printing process.
*Masks are strongly encouraged during the opening and the film screening. Seating is distanced and therefore, limited.
