DEREK DELGAUDIO’S IN & OF ITSELF
SXSW 2020 (unscreened)
DOC NYC, Montclair, Philadelphia
The illusionist’s acclaimed one-man show.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
For more than 500 performances, Derek DelGaudio left New York City audiences moved and astonished by his one-man show combining the art of illusion and storytelling. Filmmaker Frank Oz turns DelGaudio’s intimate live performances into an unforgettable film about redemption and identity that builds with both emotion and wonder to a jaw-dropping final act. Now that live performance has been drastically curtailed by the pandemic, the chance to be immersed in this one-of-a-kind experience feels all the more precious.
