About the Film

In this entertaining and thought-provoking film, director Ben Berman receives a surprising lesson in the unpredictability of documentary filmmaking when he sets out to chronicle the comeback tour of "The Amazing Johnathan," a magician/comedian who was given one year to live... three years earlier. Soon after filming starts, Berman learns some unsettling news that changes the shape of his project—and his relationship to his subject—in unforeseeable ways, leaving the filmmaker struggling to separate truth from illusion.
