From the award-winning creative team behind Notes On Blindness and Listen To Me Marlon comes a contemporary take on cinema’s most iconic figure. In an innovative blend of newly-unearthed audio recordings, dramatic reconstructions and personal archive, the film traces his meteoric rise from the slums of Victorian London to the heights of Hollywood superstardom, before his scandalous fall from grace.
Refracting Chaplin’s life through a kaleidoscope of previously unheard voices and perspectives, the film sheds new light on the many sides of a groundbreaking, controversial and visionary artist. For decades he was the most famous man in the world but who was The Real Charlie Chaplin?
An ARCHER’S MARK, PASSION PICTURES and SMALLER BIGGIE production, in association with FEE FIE FOE and VENTURELAND.
Directed by Peter Middleton and James Spinney.
