The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (OF)
Kurzfilm: AD 1363, The End of Chivalry (3 min)
Toby is currently working on a ‘Don Quixote’-themed ad on the planes of La Mancha. He had come to the area ten years earlier to shoot his student film, a black-and-white ‘Quixote’ adaptation where he cast as the chivalrous knight a local shoemaker, Javier, who subsequently turns out to be a committed method actor. Abandoning the commercial shoot, he returns to the place where he had first dreamed of becoming a director, only to discover that Javier now believes he really is Don Quixote and that Toby is his squire, Sancho Panza. After accidentally causing a fire and pinning a crime on a local hawker of rip-off DVDs, Toby finds himself hunted by the police, having to ride out into the desert with Quixote, ending up on a series of slapstick adventures where reality and fiction are only a hair’s breadth apart.
