The Well, 2005

The well (Brunnen, 2005)

The Well is a film about Orson Welles. It’s not a biographical film about his careers in film and theatre, it’s about his relationship to Spain. Despite the great mass of biographies that have been written about him, this side of his personality has remained unseen even though Welles spent almost five years of his life in the country. Welles is also buried in Rhonda, Andalusia, in a well in the back yard of the legendary matador Antonio Ordonez finca. The Well will be a road movie, of sorts, through Spain on the hunt for the mystery of the well.
