Lost in La Mancha

Lost in La Mancha is a 2002 documentary film about the making of Terry Gilliam's first attempt at The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. His effort was a film adaptation of the 1605/1615 novel Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes. The documentary was shot in 2000 during Gilliam's first attempt to make the film, as an intended work of the genre known as the "making-of". But Gilliam's failure to complete his movie resulted in the documentary filmmakers retitling their work as Lost in la Mancha and releasing it independently.
