An Honest Liar
(nr) 90 min
in English

For the last half-century, James “The Amazing” Randi has entertained millions of people around the world with his remarkable feats of magic, escape and trickery. Randi saw his tricks being used by faith healers, fortune-tellers, and psychics — not for entertainment, but to steal money from innocent people. Enraged by this, Randi embarked on a mission for truth by perpetrating a series of elaborate hoaxes. But when dealing with a master deceiver, the truth can often be hard to find. A sudden and shocking truth in Randi’s personal life is brought to light, and Randi – who spent his life exposing deception – may have perpetrated another grand hoax or become the victim of a very personal one.
