They will discuss the scope of scientific skepticism, including: What topics and areas of inquiry - if any - are "off limits" to skepticism and skeptical activism? Where should skeptics focus their limited resources in a world of pseudoscience and uncritical thinking? They will also reflect on the current state of skepticism and the skeptical movement.

“Directors Tyler Measom and Justin Weinstein turn a standard bio-doc about an extraordinary man into a rumination on the blurred line between trickery and truth.”
- Ariel Teplitsky, Toronto Star


“Absorbing… The film feels like an enchanting magic act with its web of lies, cheats, and reveals. An Honest Liar leaves one doubting the power of so-called-mystics, but it successfully conjures the magic of movies.”
- Patrick Mullen, Point of View Magazine
