Watch Now - "Make Believe," The Battle for World's Best Teen Magician

In the feature-length documentary Make Believe, director J. Clay Tweel follows six adolescent outsiders who all share an extraordinary passion: the art of magic.

Among the teens featured in the film is 18-year-old Siphiwe Fangase of Cape Town, South Africa, who explains “I don’t have much friends. My friend is magic.”

He and the other young magicians from around the world journey to attend the annual World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas, where they each hope to be named Teen World Champion by master magician Lance Burton.

Make Believe won several awards on the 2010 film festival circuit and enjoys a limited theater release this spring. For more info on the film and where to see it, visit makebelievefilm.com.
