The Real Charlie Chaplin Official Trailer


The film will open in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on

Friday 4th March

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. In an innovative blend of newly-unearthed audio recordings, dramatic reconstructions and personal archive, the film traces Charlie Chaplin’s meteoric rise from the slums of Victorian London to the heights of Hollywood superstardom, before his scandalous fall from grace.

Refracting his life through a kaleidoscope of previously unheard voices and perspectives, the film sheds new light on the many sides of a groundbreaking, controversial and visionary artist. For decades he was the most famous man in the world but who was The Real Charlie Chaplin?

The Real Charlie Chaplin is an Archer’s MarkPassion Pictures and Smaller Biggie production, in association with Ventureland and Fee Fie Foe.

The film also received funding by the BFI, awarding funds from the National LotteryFilm4 and Showtime Documentary Films.
