This is a teaser trailer for the feature documentary, DEALT, chronicling the unpredictable journey of magic's most inspiring figure: Richard Turner.
He is a phenomenon in the world of magic. For forty years he has dazzled audiences around the globe appearing in Hollywood films, major network TV specials and performing nightly at the historic Magic Castle in LA. He does it all with only a deck of cards. But for those who observe him closely, they will discover his most amazing feat: Richard Turner is completely blind.
At the age of nine, Richard began losing his sight to a degenerative disease that would leave him in a world of darkness. For much of his formative years he felt helpless and drifted onto a path of destruction, often turning to drugs.
Everything changed when Richard realized his loss of sight was being compensated by an increasingly refined sense of touch - in particular, with a deck of cards. At twenty-one he was discovered by the late Dai Vernon, known as the only magician to ever fool Houdini. Due to Richard’s intense dedication and seemingly supernatural touch, he mastered all that Vernon taught him, and became arguably the greatest card mechanic/manipulator the world has ever seen.
