Orson Welles: The One-Man Band

Orson Welles: The One-Man Band

Deutschland / Frankreich / Schweiz 1995, Dokumentarfilm

Inhalt

When Orson Welles, enfant terrible and creator of some of the greatest works in film history, died in 1985, The Other Side of the Wind remained unfinished: this was the film that, born in Welles‚ last decade, became a myth; this was the film that was to be his belated master-piece.

And yet Welles bequeathed his longtime companion Oja Kodar a wealth of other, unedited films and fragments, that offer undreamt-of intimate insights into Welles′ undying creativity. Today, ten years later, the semi-documentary film Orson Welles - The One-Man Band tells the story of this extraordinary filmmaker‚s last years. Welles′ futile efforts to complete The Other Side of the Wind weaves like a red thread through a great part of his previously unedited fragments, now made accessible, now telling their own stories. Orson Welles - The One-man Band includes excerpts from The Deep, Merchant of Venice, The Dreamers, Moby Dick, Tailors, Churchill, Swinging London, The One-Man Band, F For Fake-Trailer, Magic-Show, The-Orson-Welles-Show, Filming the Trial and The Other Side of the Wind.
