An Honest Liar

Documentary film about James 'The Amazing' Randi
Introduction: Anastasios Sarampalis

An Honest Liar is a feature documentary about the life and career of James 'The Amazing' Randi and his mission for truth by perpetrating a series of unparalleled investigations and elaborate hoaxes.

These grand schemes fooled scientists, the media, and a gullible public, but always with a deeper goal of demonstrating the importance of evidence and the dangers of magical thinking. But can you trust a master deceiver?
Introduction and discussion led by Psychologist Anastasios Sarampalis, University of Groningen.
