THE DON IS DONE
Well...the filming is complete for Terry Gilliam's 17 year long gestating The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Now it's time for it to move to post-production.
The film has achieved legendary status as an exercise in frustration and perservernce as Gilliam has been trying to get the film made for 17+ years. The film was featured as a part of a documentary that played Telluride back in 2002 (TFF #29). The doc was entitled Lost in La Mancha and Gilliam attended the fest as a part of that.
The Telluride program description for Lost in La Mancha sounds like it could have been written right up until this last year:

WHAT WE HAVEN'T SEEN...YET
I'm a little surprised that we haven't seen a poster release for TFF #44 as yet. I checked back over the last six years and the fest usually has announced the poster by this time. 2012 was an anomaly as the poster artist and poster weren't announced until July 9th. But each of the other years back to 2011, we've known who and what by this time.
Here's a quick trip down poster memory lane:
