Stuck for years in development limbo, Gilliam’s passion project finally makes it to the big screen.
Toby, a cynical advertising director, enters a world of time-jumping fantasy when he meets “Don Quixote”, a delusional Spanish cobbler who believes his new acquaintance to be Sancho Panza. In the course of their comic and increasingly surreal adventures, Toby is forced to confront the tragic repercussions of a film he made in his idealistic youth – a film that changed the hopes and dreams of a small Spanish village forever. Can Toby make amends and regain his humanity? Can Don Quixote survive his madness and imminent death? Or will love conquer all?
This screening will be followed by a recorded Q&A with director Terry Gilliam.
