14 Pews will present the award-winning documentary An Honest Liar, directed by Justin Weinstein and Tyler Measom. After the screening there will be a Q&A with World’s Leading Mentalist, Banachek.
An Honest Liar is a feature documentary about the world-famous magician, escape artist, and world-renowned enemy of deception, James "The Amazing" Randi. The film brings to life Randi's intricate investigations that publicly exposed psychics, faith healers, and con-artists with quasi-religious fervor. A master deceiver who came out of the closet at the age of 81, Randi created fictional characters, fake psychics, and even turned his partner of 25 years, the artist Jose Alvarez, into a sham guru named Carlos. But when a shocking revelation in Randi's personal life is discovered, it isn't clear whether Randi is still the deceiver - or the deceived.
Described as the “Cream of the Crop” when it comes to entertainers, Banachek is the world’s leading mindreader. Having astounded audiences across the globe, his talents are so incredible that he is the only mentalist ever to fool scientists into believing he possessed "psychic powers," only to then later reveal he was fooling.
