Movie Info

Croatian father-and-son filmmakers Jakov and Dominik Sedlar explore the genius of Citizen Kane director Orson Welles through the examination of lost footage from unfinished projects and interviews with the friends, family, and colleagues who knew him best in this documentary, which delves deeper into the public persona of the actor, director, writer, and editor than ever before. An extensively researched oral and visual examination of the legendary entertainer, Searching for Orson also includes interviews with such filmmakers as Steven Spielberg and Peter Bogdanovich, exploring just how the mastermind of the notorious 1938 "War of the Worlds" broadcast continues to influence future generations of filmmakers even decades after his death.
