Terry Gilliam is back on the big screen, but perhaps not in the way he had intended. Terry and, more specifically, his movie The Man Who Killed Don Quixote are the subjects of the new and exciting docu-film Lost In La Mancha.

The film is touring many film festivals at the moment and is getting set for the official UK release.

Via email, Terry tells us of his current status: “I'm off to the Umbria Film Festival in Montone [Italy] for the World Premiere of Lost In La Mancha which will take place on the 9th of July. The UK premiere is later in the month,” he said to PythOnline.

“As for work... I just got back from Hollywood and have to decide between 4 projects. I'll let you know when I know.”

UK screenings are as follows, with the US premiere sometime this Autumn. The names, for those not familiar with the project, are Producer Lucy Darwin and Directors Louis Pepe and Keith Fulton.
