June 18, 2012 — Earlier this year I was contacted by the editors at Zum, a new Brazilian photography quarterly, who explained how they’d lately taken an interest in the photo-philosophical musings of the celebrated documentary filmmaker Errol Morris (The Thin Blue Line, Fog of War, Standard Operating Procedure, etc.), as evinced both in his recent book Believing is Seeing and his ongoing New York Times blog, and wondered whether I’d be willing to undertake a conversation with Mr. Morris by way of introduction to their Brazilian readers.

Lawrence Weschler (LW): Why don’t we start with the first chapter in your new book [Believing is Seeing], in many ways emblematic of all the rest, in which you spend over seventy pages interrogating two photographs taken by Roger Fenton in 1855 of a landscape after a battle in the Crimean War. Early on, you quote your friend Ron Rosenbaum: You mean to tell me that you went all the way to the Crimea because of one sentence written by Susan Sontag? LW: No. Total Balalaika Show BFF2010. F for Fake: Orson Welles’s Purloined Letter - From the Current - The Criterion Collection. There were plenty of advantages to living in Paris in the early 1970s, especially if one was a movie buff with time on one’s hands. The Parisian film world is relatively small, and simply being on the fringes of it afforded some exciting opportunities, even for a writer like myself who’d barely published. Leaving the Cine? Mathe? Que at the Palais de Chaillot one night, I was invited to be an extra in a Robert Bresson film that was being shot a few blocks away.

And in early July 1972, while writing for Film Comment about Orson Welles’s first Hollywood project, the never completed Heart of Darkness, I learned Welles was in town and sent a letter to him at Ante? I met him at La Me? This sounds like a pompous boast, although, like most of what he told me that afternoon about other matters, it turned out to be accurate. When I wound up being invited to an early private screening more than a year later, on October 15, 1973, the film was called Fake. Basilio Martín Patino.

Un joven guionista de radio repasa, nervioso, su adaptación de 'La guerra de los mundos'. Aquel día otoñal en que Orson Welles dirigió e interpretó su personal visión del texto homónimo de H.G. El episodio dio fama internacional a Orson Welles. Orson quería ser torero Lo que muchos no saben es que, siete años antes, en la mente de Orson Welles no había extraterrestes, sino toros. Su amor a la Fiesta Nacional y, en general, a España ("Soy un gran entusiasta de España", dijo en una ocasión) son motivos más que suficientes para rendirle homenaje estos días.

Muchos se preguntan estos días qué ocurriría si se decidiese repetir la hazaña de Orson Welles. Guerra_mundos.
