"As elusive as it is playful."—Wendy Ide, Times (UK)

"F for Fake is as grand, multitudinous, and original as Welles himself."—Richard Brody, The New Yorker

50th Anniversary | Presented as part of our Scenesters Selects Program

Come early for a special prize drawing!

Orson Welles' final film documents the lives of infamous fakers Elmyr de Hory and Clifford Irving. De Hory, who later committed suicide to avoid more prison time, made his name by selling forged works of art by painters like Picasso and Matisse. Irving was infamous for writing a fake autobiography of Howard Hughes. Welles moves between documentary and fiction as he examines the fundamental elements of fraud and the people who commit fraud at the expense of others.

Stick around for a postshow conversation with our Scenesters, who programmed this film!
