The Amazing Johnathan

The Amazing Johnathan Documentary  

Synopsis

Directed by Ben Berman (Tim & Eric, How to Lose Weight in 4 Easy Steps), this fascinating film begins as a documentary about a magician who built a career out of shock and deception in the 1980s, and becomes a bizarre story about the unravelling of his documentarian.


When illusionist ‘The Amazing Johnathan’ seems to have survived a terminal diagnosis that had forced him to retire his act, documentarian Ben Berman films his epic comeback tour. But as their mutual journey kicks off, Johnathan drops a bombshell that sends the film spiralling into uncertainty and Ben delves deeper to determine what is truth and what is illusion.

SELECTED AS ONE OF REALSCREEN'S MIPCOM 2019 HOT PICKS!
