DOCUTAH MONTHLY DOCUMENTARY SERIES
Lost in LaMancha
Visionary director Terry Gilliam has a dream. He wants to film the classic story of Don Quixote by recasting it as a trippy, time-traveling, mistaken-identity adventure with Johnny Depp as Quixote. After struggling for years to get financing, insurance and a cast in place, Gilliam travels to Spain and promptly watches his dream fall apart.
Follow director Terry Gilliam on his quest to bring Don Quixote to the big screen. At times hilarious, this intimate film features Johnny Depp and is a unique, in-depth look at the harsher realities of filmmaking. From flash floods to cast no-shows to serious injuries, Gilliam and his crew suffer one setback after another. Gilliam’s failure in making the movie led it to be re titled Lost in la Mancha and to be released independently. It is a cautionary tale. It co-stars Johnny Depp, Jean Rochefort, and Vanessa Paradis, all supposed to star in the film they tried to make,The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, and is narrated by Jeff Bridges.
Hosted by writers and directors Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe
