Orson Welles had a great love for Spain; he often worked there, had an estate in Madrid, and his remains are buried in Andalucia. Filmmakers and journalists Carlos F. Heredero and Esteve Riambau set out to trace the story of Welles' involvement in Spain, and Orson Welles En El Pais De Don Quijote is the result. Beginning with pro-Republican documentaries Welles helped to make during the Spanish Civil War, the film goes on to explore Welles' fondness for Spanish culture (though his understanding of it may have been limited), the troubled production of his film Mr. Arkadian, his numerous attempts to film Cervantes' Don Quixote (including an Italian television film on Spain in which Welles inserted several passages from the novel), and a number of other film projects that took Welles to Spain, including Treasure Island and his own Shakespearean opus, Chimes at Midnight. Orson Welles En El Pais De Don Quijote includes interviews with a number of Welles' friends and colleagues, as well as never-before-seen clips from his abandoned Don Quixote.
