At the recent Telluride Film Festival in Colorado, Orson Welles’ last film, ‘The Other Side of the Wind,’ saw its premiere, decades after the filmmaker’s death.
Welles had not finished the film by the time of his death of a heart attack in 1985.
The film has seen its release halted for many years by disputes over who exactly owned the rights to the work, and there have been multiple failed attempts to finally release the film to the public.
Netflix was among those who provided funding for the finished version of the film, which includes color footage, black and white footage, as well as footage shot on a variety of film formats, from 35 millimeter to Super 8 millimeter.
Thanks in part to the funding they offered, Netflix will release the film on its streaming site, in addition to a limited theatrical release nationwide.
