Granted exclusive access to hundreds of private drawings and paintings by Orson Welles, filmmaker Mark Cousins dives deep into the visual world of this legendary director and actor, to reveal a portrait through his own eyes, sketched with his own hand and painted with his own brush.

Executive produced by Michael Moore, The Eyes of Orson Welles brings vividly to life the passions, politics and power of this brilliant 20th-century showman and explores how the genius of Welles still resonates today in the age of Trump, more than 30 years after his death.
