In 1970, legendary director Orson Welles began filming what would ultimately be his final cinematic opus. Beset by financial issues, the production stretched to 1976 and soon gained industry-wide notoriety, never to be completed or released. More than a thousand reels of film languished in a Paris vault until 2017, when producers Frank Marshall and Filip Jan Rymsza assembled a technical team headed by editor Bob Murawski to have Welles’ vision completed more than 30 years after his death.
THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND - A famed maverick director (John Huston) returns to Hollywood after years in self-exile, with plans to complete an innovative comeback movie. A satire of the classic studio system as well as the new establishment who were shaking things up at the time, Welles’ final film is both a fascinating time capsule of a now-distant era in filmmaking, as well as the long-awaited “new” work from an indisputable master of his craft. Co-starring Peter Bogdanovich, Oja Kodar, Susan Strasberg and Dennis Hopper.
