Event Description

The Unknown Orson Welles: Scenes from The Other Side of the Wind (1970–76) and The Dreamers (1982)

Oja Kodar was one of Orson Welles’s closest collaborators toward the end of his career, having cowritten several screenplays and starred in his movies. On November 20, she makes a rare New York appearance to discuss their fascinating partnership and introduce the Munich Filmmuseum’s reconstruction of two legendary—and legendarily unseen—Welles projects: The Other Side of the Wind, for which he ended up editing only a few sequences, and a compilation of test scenes he shot for The Dreamers, a planned adaptation of an Isak Dinesen short story. The program opens with two extended trailers that Welles edited in 1975 in the hope of a Hollywood comeback, but never showed: his trailer for The Deep, newly restored by the Munich Filmmuseum, and his trailer for F for Fake, newly reconstructed with additional outtakes. Reconstruction by the Munich Filmmuseum; courtesy of Oja Kodar. Program approx. 100 min.

Introduced Stefan Droessler, Director, Munich Filmmuseum
