The Hamilton College F.I.L.M. series will feature Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles with an appearance by director Chuck Workman, on Sunday, March 8, at 2 p.m., in KJ's Bradford Auditorium. This and all F.I.L.M. events are free and open to the public.
Chuck Workman established himself as Hollywood’s master “recycler” with his Precious Images, which won the Academy Award in 1986 for Best Short Subject and alerted Hollywood to the value of clips from classic films. The montages he has designed for Academy Awards shows are often the most enjoyable moments in those shows!
Workman is also a devoted documentarian, who has made a series of features about crucial artists and filmmakers. He returns to Hamilton to present his newest doc, an entertaining and enlightening exploration of the life and work of Orson Welles.
