NYC PREMIERE 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. Combining previously unheard audio recordings, dramatic reconstructions, and photos and films from personal archives, the film traces Charlie Chaplin’s meteoric rise from the slums of Victorian London to the heights of Hollywood superstardom, before his scandalous fall from grace. The film allows us to marvel at Chaplin’s artistry while thinking more critically about his relationships. – Thom Powers
