Awards Daily proudly presents this exclusive clip from the upcoming documentary He Dreams of Giants. Directors Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe previously documented Terry Gilliam’s attempt to film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote in 2002’s Lost in La Mancha.

From the team behind Lost in La Mancha, HE DREAMS OF GIANTS is the culmination of a trilogy of documentaries that have followed film director Terry Gilliam over a twenty-five-year period. Charting Gilliam’s final, beleaguered quest to adapt Don Quixote, this documentary is a potent study of creative Obsession. Combining immersive verité footage of Gilliam’s production with intimate interviews and archival footage from the director’s entire career, HE DREAMS OF GIANTS is a revealing character study of a late-career artist, and a meditation on the value of creativity in the face of mortality.
