Albert Maysles, David Maysles, 1963, 10 min

Film Synopsis

Orson Welles pitches to potential investors his vision of a largely improvised bullfighter movie about an existential, James Dean type, troubadour who sets himself apart from other matadors. In front of an audience of wealthy arts patrons, Welles pontificates on the state of cinema, the filmmaking process and the art of bullfighting.
