From Oscar-winner Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom and Won’t You Be My Neighbor?) this documentary takes a searching look at Orson Welles in the twilight of his career, when he was struggling to launch films that smart money didn’t trust him to make. Producers were eager to take him to dinner, but not to the bank. The director chronicles Welles’ failed attempts to finish The Other Side of the Wind as he scrounged for pennies doing cameos in other people’s movies and infamous commercials for Paul Masson wine. Neville’s film contains never-before-seen footage and interviews with participants in The Other Side of the Wind.
