The Amazing Johnathan Documentary
About the Screening
The Amazing Johnathan Documentary begins as a profile on a uniquely deranged magician who built a career out of shock and deception in the 1980s, but becomes the bizarre story about the unravelling of his documentarian.
Screening of film is followed by a moderated post-film conversation with Director/Producer Ben Berman, plus a reception at the Landmark Wine Bar
