We talk with Molly Bernstein whose film, The Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay, was featured at this year’s Glasgow Film Festival. She discusses the 12 years it took to make the film and how it focuses on Ricky Jay’s interest in his own mentors. As Jay says himself, “The real key to learning is almost like the sensei-master relationship. The way you want to learn is by someone you respect showing you something.” We also feature a few excerpts from the film and a piece from co-director Alan Edelstein. Check out the film. Presented by Ryan Van Winkle and produced by Colin Fraser of Culture Laser Productions.
