Synopsis

Leonard Zelig is a man with a very weird ability - he takes on the characteristics of whoever he's standing next to, like a human chameleon. Shooting to fame in the 1920s, Zelig attracts medical curiosity at first, and then becomes a celebrity - including launching his own dance craze. This funny, deadpan "mockumentary" charts Zelig's progress through life via brilliantly faked newsreel footage, where we learn that Zelig has shown up at most of the major historical events and parties this century.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
