Event Details

A young blockbuster filmmaker, Toby (Adam Driver) is making an ad for a Russian vodka brand in Spain when he suddenly discovers a DVD of his 10-year-old student film, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Filmed near the current location, Toby goes around to refresh his memory and meets the then-film star (Jonathan Pryce), who has been since  identified himself as Don Quixote. As he is feeling for the old demented man, Toby incarnates as his henchman, Sancho Panza, and from there on, even he loses his understanding of where the line between reality and imagination runs. Filmmaker Terry Gilliam worked on the film for over 20 years before it finally premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018. Although predominantly in English, the film is mainly filmed in Spain and Portugal and exudes a truly Cervantesian vibe.
