From award-winning filmmakers Peter Middleton and James Spinney (Notes on Blindness) comes a contemporary take on cinema’s most iconic figure. Deftly blending rich archive material, from photographs to home movies, along with stunning dramatic reconstructions, the film revolves around a revelatory and previously unheard 1966 audio recording – a four-day interview Chaplin gave to Life magazine reporter Richard Meryman. It traces Chaplin’s meteoric rise from the slums of Victorian London to the heights of Hollywood superstardom, before his scandalous fall from grace. Refracting his life through a kaleidoscope of previously unheard voices and perspectives, the film sheds new light on the many sides of a groundbreaking, controversial and visionary artist. For decades he was the most famous man in the world, but who was the real Charlie Chaplin?
