(Undated) — Orson Welles’ unfinished final film from the 1970s called “The Other Side of the Wind” is out on Netflix and in selected theaters. The prolific director shot and edited the film on and off for six years before legal battles and financial troubles kept the one-thousand reels of footage in a Paris vault. Forty years later, a team of producers led by original production manager Frank Marshall obtained, edited and prepped the film for limited release. It centers around the 70th birthday party for a famed director who hopes to find relevancy by screening his newest film for the gathering. The film is notable for using many documentary cameras to record every character’s facial expressions and words. A documentary which chronicles the history of the film and Welles’ life called “They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead” is also now streaming on Netflix.
