From the award-winning creative team behind Notes on Blindness and Listen to Me, Marlon comes a contemporary take on cinema’s most iconic figure: Charlie Chaplin. Combining unheard audio recordings, dramatic reconstructions and personal archive, the film traces Chaplin’s meteoric rise from the slums of Victorian London to the heights of Hollywood superstardom, before his scandalous fall from grace.

This kaleidoscopic documentary portrait explores the many facets of a complex figure whose life was as extraordinary as his art. For decades he was the most famous man in the world. But who was The Real Charlie Chaplin
