First Poster and Trailer - Orson Welles’ 'The Other Side Of The Wind'



It's been quite the journey for Orson Welles' "The Other Side of the Wind." The film, an abandoned project that was shot in the 1970s, was finally completed by Welles' protege, director, Peter Bogdanovich this year. Netflix jumped on-board at the opportunity to restore this "lost" film when every other studio balked. 

Last May, an Indiegogo campaign was launched to help complete Orson Welles' final film. The six-year shoot was plagued by budget cuts, troubles in production, casting and other legal issues.  It remained unfinished at the time of Welles’ death in 1985. 

Netflix took on the task and nabbed the global rights to the film, the deal implied that they were to finance the completion and restoration of "The Other Side of the Wind," this would all lead to a full-throtted release this year.

The Other Side Of The Wind” premieres in Venice this week, then a pit-stop to the Telluride film festival before it ends its celebratory journey at the New York Film Festival in October.  

“The Other Side Of The Wind” will be in select theaters, and stream on Netflix, November 2nd.
