Ahead of its nationwide release on 22 November 2019, Dogwoof has released a UK trailer and poster for The Amazing Johnathan Documentary. Benjamin Berman’s acclaimed feature directorial debut starts as the story of The Amazing Johnathan, an extraordinary magician who built a career out of shock and deception in the 1980s, which transforms into a bizarre story about the unravelling of the documentarian.

After Johnathan is diagnosed with a terminal heart condition and given one year to live, he’s forced to retire his act. Cut to three years later: Johnathan is not dead, much to everyone’s amazement, and documentarian Ben Berman films the illusionist on an epic comeback tour. But as their mutual journey kicks off, Johnathan drops a bombshell that sends the film spiraling into uncertainty. Embracing this unforeseen obstacle, Ben delves deeper to determine what is truth and what is illusion. Built into the heart of this quick-witted and highly Meta story is an indelible commentary on the process and ethics of making a documentary today. Issues of negotiation and access become the central threads that reveal, and further cloud, our understanding of this elusive protagonist.

A ONE NIGHT ONLY Q+A WITH DIRECTOR BEN BERMAN & LOUIS THEROUX WILL BE BROADCAST IN CINEMAS ON 19 NOVEMBER 2019

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE.

THE AMAZING JOHNATHAN DOCUMENTARY WILL BE RELEASED IN THE UK AND IRELAND ON 22 NOVEMBER 2019.
