Citizen Kane

Part of the Orson Welles Season

Body

The 26-year-old Orson Welles, already renowned for his work in radio and theatre, used the unprecedented artistic license offered to him by RKO to create a fictionalised portrait of one of America’s most powerful men – press baron William Randolph Hearst. Charting the rise of Charles Foster Kane (played by Welles himself) – who decides to start a newspaper with his inherited fortune – Welles’ groundbreaking debut is a classic story of the corrupting effects of power, and remains a modernist masterpiece.
 

Screening to celebrate the release of The Eyes of Orson Welles, which screens from Fri 17 to Thu 23 August.
