A “making of” documentary about a film that didn’t get made, this record of Terry Gilliam’s thwarted attempts to make his dream project – a film about a modern Don Quixote – pulls back the curtain on the frequently harsh realities of movie-making. After preparing his film for 10 years, Gilliam was able to shoot for just six days before crew conflicts, an injured star and an epic storm that washed away his camera equipment shut the production down. All this is captured by the directors in fly-on-the-wall observation, interviews and animated sequences of Gilliam’s storyboards that give a glimpse of the film that might have been. In the end, it is less about the film-making process than the tragedy of a defeated hero: Terry Gilliam himself.
