In the final fifteen years of the life of legendary director Orson Welles he pins his Hollywood comeback hopes on a film, The Other Side of the Wind, in itself a film about an aging film director trying to finish his last great movie.
They'll Love Me When I'm Dead is a 2018 American documentary film, directed by Morgan Neville, revolving around the making and filming of The Other Side of the Wind, directed by Orson Welles.
The film's title, which takes its name from a prophetic comment Welles made to Peter Bogdanovich, centers on Welles' return to the U.S. in the early 1970s to shoot his ill-fated Hollywood comeback film. The documentary concludes with his death in October 1985. "Welles is the protagonist of my documentary," Neville said. "(The Other Side of the Wind) is so autobiographical, even though he said it was not.”
