Deauville Fest Pays Tribute To Orson Welles

PARIS– The Deauville American film festival will pay homage to Orson Welles to mark the centenary of his birth during its upcoming 41st edition.

As part of the tribute to Welles, three of his classic movies will be screened: “Citizen Kane,” “The Lady From Shanghai” and “Touch of Evil.” Clara and Julia Kuperberg’s documentary feature “This Is Orson Welles,” which is produced by TCM Cinema and Wichita Films, will also play.

Deauville described Welles as an “enduring legend of world cinema, who at an early age reinvented the grammar of his art with his masterpiece ‘Citizen Kane.’ François Truffaut spoke of how Welles had inspired so many filmmaking careers. He also put his stamp of innovation on films such as ‘Falstaff,’ ‘Mr. Arkadin’ and ‘Touch of Evil.'”

The fest also quoted Welles: “It’s required not to be shy with the camera, ravish it and force it into the trenches because she’s an evil machine. What counts is the poetry.”

As previously announced, Deauville will run Sept. 4-13, opening with Baltasar Kormakur’s “Everest” and closing with Dennis Villeneuve’s “Sicario.”
