The story of a legendary director named J.J. “Jake” Hannaford, who returns to Hollywood from years of semi-exile in Europe, with plans to complete work on his own innovative comeback movie, also titled “The Other Side of the Wind”.
It’s a film about an unfinished film – and it looks as if it may never be finished. The Other Side Of The Wind was made by Orson Welles in the early 1970s. The New York Times published a story in late 2014 suggesting that the film would soon be ready. In 2015, a crowdfunding campaign raised more than $400,000 (£304,000) for the project. Earlier this year, there were reports that Netflix was ready to put up $5m to fund the completion of the movie and to distribute it worldwide.
In The Other Side Of The Wind, John Huston plays Jake Hannaford, a macho, Hemingway-like movie director trying to resurrect his career. Welles claimed shooting was more or less completed by 1972 but production carried on for several years after that. Iranian co-financier Mehdi Bushehri (brother-in-law of the late Shah of Iran) argued with Welles over money and reportedly wouldn’t let the film be distributed until he was reimbursed.
