Richard Turner is one of the world’s greatest card magicians. His amazing sleight of hand and deft card control are astonishing, even before you find out he is completely blind. A feel-good documentary, Dealt, takes an in-depth look at Richard Turner’s complex character, and will be released on 22 July.

The documentary has received extremely positive feedback so far. It has won an Audience Award at the Independent Film Festival of Boston, and a Grand Jury Prize at DeadCENTER Film Festival. The documentary shows Richard learning a few new tricks as he comes to terms with his visual impairment.

The trailer shows Richard demonstrating his skills with a pack of cards.

The documentary will be shown three times in Auckland over the coming weeks:

Saturday, 22 July at 2pm at the Hollywood Cinema in Avondale.

Monday, 31 July at 6.15pm at the ASB Waterfront Theatre.

Tuesday, 1 August at 1.15pm at ASB Waterfront Theatre.

Watch Dealt and learn about Richard’s biggest weakness becoming his greatest strength.
