Orson Welles

At the time of his death, the great filmmaker left behind drafts of films and unfinished feature films. Thanks to Filip Jan Rymsza and Frank Marshall, his lost film, The Other Side of the Wind, is finally completed and will premiere at the Lumière festival. A documentary by Morgan Neville on the film will also be screened (They'll Love Me When I'm Dead).
