Out of Competition: Closing Film

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

by Terry Gilliam

“The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is not so much an adaptation of Cervantes’ novel as a movie about filmmaking, a Fellini-esque circus about a director who struggles to compete with his own early success. – Independent

Toby, a cynical advertising director finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker who believes himself to be Don Quixote. 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?
