Dealt, a documentary about magician Richard Turner, will run in New York starting October 20 at the IFC Center on Sixth Avenue in Greenwich Village. Turner is known throughout magic circles for his meticulous and amazing sleight-of-hand, which is doubly impressive considering that he has lost his sight due to a progressive eye disease. Production on the film started more than four years ago. According to advance announcements it charts Turner's life from his tumultuous childhood to today, revealing how he overcame insurmountable obstacles to reach the top of his profession. Dealt was directed and produced by Luke Korem, whose father is magician Danny Korem. The film was an Audience Award winner for feature documentary at the 2017 South by Southwest Film Festival.
