They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead trailer celebrates Orson Welles
Netflix has revealed the trailer for They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead, the companion documentary about Orson Welles’ time making the upcoming film The Other Side of the Wind. Check out the They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead trailer below, along with key art in the gallery!
Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom) tells the story of legendary director Orson Welles during the final 15 years of his life. No longer the “wonder boy” of Citizen Kane, Welles in 1970 was an artist in exile looking for his Hollywood comeback with a project called The Other Side of the Wind. For years, Welles toiled on the film, about an aging film director trying to finish his last great movie. Welles shot the picture guerrilla-style in chaotic circumstances with a devoted crew of young dreamers, all while struggling with financiers and fate.
In 1985, Welles died, leaving as his final testament the most famous unfinished movie in film history. The negative stayed in a vault for decades – until now. With revelatory new insights from Welles collaborators including Peter Bogdanovich, Frank Marshall, Oja Kodar and daughter Beatrice Welles, They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead is the untold final chapter of one of the greatest careers in film history: brilliant, innovative, defiant and unbowed.
They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead launches November 2 globally on Netflix and in limited theatrical release, with a special presentation at the New York Film Festival on September 29. The Other Side of the Wind is also set to make its debut in theaters and on Netflix November 2.
