'The Man Who Killed Don Quixote' at the 62nd BFI London Film Festival

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, director Terry Gilliam's labour of love that has been two decades in the making, was finally completed this year, and is being shown as the Laugh Gala screening at the 62nd BFI London Film Festival ahead of its 2019 release.

Our reporter Amy went along to the film's premiere to get the veteran filmmaker's advice to young filmmakers, and caught up with actors Jonathan Pryce and Olga Kurylenko to find out about their experiences working on such a unique project.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote will be released in cinemas on 19 May 2019.
