Trailer & Poster: Documentary HE DREAMS OF GIANTS Charts Terry Gilliam’s Quixotic Filmmaking Journey
He Dreams Of Giants is a documentary charting director Terry Gilliam’s exhaustive (and near impossible) journey to make his elusive passion-project, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.
The film comes from directors Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe and producer Lucy Darwin, the team behind 2002’s Lost in La Mancha, a stunning documentary film which detailed a doomed earlier production of the film which was set to star Johnny Depp.
After 30 years of attempting to make the film, he finally got to it to the screen in 2018, with a cast that included Jonathan Pryce and Adam Driver.
This looks powerful – I can’t wait to see it.
Blue Finch Film will release He Dreams of Giants on digital platforms 29 March 202.
