Synopsis by Maggie Sadler

Co-directors Peter Middleton and James Spinney compile a raw and striking portrait of noteworthy silent film actor Charlie Chaplin. Using never-before-seen clips from Chaplin's candid interview with Life Magazine in 1966, the filmmakers shed light on the actor's upbringing and unexpected foray into the entertainment industry. The interview, woven together with clips from Chaplin's films, provides a meditation on Chaplin's impact on Hollywood from the actor's own perspective.
