HE DREAMS OF GIANTS
UK 2019, 83 min Directors KEITH FULTON, LOUIS PEPE
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 complete The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, now starring Oscar® nominees Adam Driver and Jonathan Pryce. With cues from Fellini’s 8½, Fulton and Pepe document the culmination of Gilliam’s life in film, illuminating his copious talents, obsessions, and humor, as he confronts self-doubt, mortality, and artistic compromise in order to fully realize his long-held dream.
KEITH FULTON and LOUIS PEPE are directors of both documentary and fiction films and have made movies together for over 20 years. They are fellows of the Sundance Institute’s Writer’s and Director’s Labs, the Documentary Story & Edit Lab, and the Catalyst Forum. Fulton and Pepe’s documentary feature Lost in La Mancha stands as the first and only verité chronicle of the collapse of a major motion picture. Their fiction film debut Brothers of the Head was winner of the Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature in 2006.
