Synopsis
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 of the artist as he's never been seen before - through his own eyes, sketched with his own hand, 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.

The film is entirely produced in Scotland, with scenes filmed in Edinburgh and a focus on Macbeth's Scotland. Many key cast and crew are mostly Scottish residents, including director Mark Cousins, Producers Adam Dawtrey and Mary Bell and composer Matt Regan.
