Magic History - Documentaries To Watch

Updated: Apr 5

The History of our art is as important as the techniques employed.


Where do these ideas come from?

How did we get to where we are today?


Below are some documentaries I have really enjoyed that I feel do a good job embracing our history as an art. They cover many different varieties and performers.


The PBS Art Of Magic Documentary I received on my 10th birthday and it really is what embedded my interest indefinitely into the art. Respecting our lineage as performers.
