As NPR’s Andrew Limbong reports, they have started a $2 million crowdfunding campaign on the website Indiegogo to finish putting the movie together. Andrew says: Welles “wrote a script about an aging filmmaker who tries a comeback with one last movie. Welles never got enough money together to finish The Other Side of the Wind. The producers are hoping to edit the material he shot into a final movie.” This is the latest twist to a fascinating tale of how Welles conceived of the movie and filmed it, and ultimately why it was never completed. The idea for the movie dates back to 1937 when Welles brawled with Ernest Hemingway during Welles’ recording of a documentary on the Spanish Civil War. Welles used that interaction to work on a story about an author in decline. He later changed the story to focus on a filmmaker. The producers say: “Originally self-financed, Welles later turned to a mixture of financiers (German, Spanish and Iranian) to complete the film. Things turned for the worse when a crowdfunding producer absconded [with] funds and the Persian revolution complicated the Iranian investors involvement.
