In the world of close-up magic, award-winning card shark Richard Turner is recognized as one of the best card manipulators you'll ever see -- the keywords being "you'll ever see." That's because Richard Turner is also completely blind.

Check out the newly released trailer for "Dealt," an upcoming indie documentary that paints a fascinating portrait of close-up magician Richard Turner who -- despite losing his eyesight due to a childhood bout with scarlet fever -- has developed a remarkable skill in card counting and card shuffling which is second to none.

Directed and produced by documentary filmmaker Luke Korem (Lord Montagu), "Dealt" earned the Audience Award when it premiered at this year's SXSW Film Festival. The documentary is now slated to hit theaters and VOD on October 20th.

synopsis:
One of the most renowned card magicians of all time, Richard Turner, astounds audiences around the world with his legendary sleight of hand. What they may not even realize -- and what makes his achievements all the more amazing -- is that he is completely blind. Charting Turner's colorful life from his tumultuous childhood to the present, Dealt reveals how through determination and force of will, he overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles to rise to the top of his profession. It’s both a tantalizing, up-close look at the secretive world of magic and a candid, awe-inspiring portrait of a man who lives beyond his limitations.
