Charlatan or psychic marvel? While Ted Serios appears to expose Polaroids solely by the power of his mind, cameramen of a very different type gather around him. 'Thoughtographer' Serios was a hard-drinking Chicago bell boy who caused a sensation in the 1960s. Based on footage restored by the Austrian Film Museum. 

This screening is part of the IFFR program Signals: Regained, developed in collaboration with Edwin Carels. Signals: Regained is an annual part of the festival, and shows a collection of restored classics, inexplicably forgotten masterpieces and films and documentaries that centre on cinema itself.
