Some labelled Terry Gilliam’s 30 year quest to make ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ cursed, he certainly went through a number of issues trying to get it made. The documentary ‘He Dreams of Giants’ following Gilliam on his quest to make the film has dropped a new trailer.
The touching documentary is a potent study of creative obsession. Combining immersive footage of Gilliam’s production with intimate interviews and archival footage from the director’s entire career, the doc is a revealing character study of an artist and a meditation on the value of creativity in the face of mortality.
Directed by Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe and produced by Lucy Darwin, the team behind ‘Lost in La Mancha’, the 2002 documentary that charted the doomed earlier production of ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’. It features legendary artist and director Terry Gilliam (Brazil, Twelve Monkeys), and features Adam Driver (The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, Marriage Story) and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes, Brazil).
