To cope with the pressures of growing up, magic-obsessed teenagers congregate at the one place where they can be themselves: Tannen’s Magic Camp, the most prestigious magic institution in the world.
Here, they strive to prove their worth on the same stage where superstar magicians David Blaine, Criss Angel, and David Copperfield once performed. For these kids, their chosen art form is more than sleight of hand and tricks of the trade; it’s about finding the magic inside.
This new, award-winning documentary from two-time Emmy-nominated director Judd Ehrlich (Run for Your Life, Mayor of the West Side, Science Fiction Land), and the cinematographer of the Sundance hits Word Wars and American Teen. Featuring an original score by Michael Hearst. Also, music by David Byrne, Stevie Wonder, Tanya Donelly, Calexico, and Raphael Saadiq. (DOC NYC) (JMG)
