Following their exceptional portrait of Terry Gilliam’s doomed struggle to bring his adaptation of Don Quixote to the screen, directors Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe pick back up with Gilliam 15 years after Lost in La Mancha. Full of behind-the-scenes moments of inspiration, collaboration, anguish, and triumph, He Dreams of Giants is the sequel we never thought we’d see, as Gilliam successfully continues his 30-year quest to make The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, now starring Oscar® nominees Adam Driver and Jonathan Pryce. With cues from Fellini’s , Fulton and Pepe document the culmination of Gilliam’s life in film, illuminating his copious talents, obsessions, and humor, as he’s fully engaged to confront self-doubt, mortality, and artistic compromise in order to fully realize his long-held dream.
