About Terry Gilliam
After directing his fellow Pythons in MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, and MEANING OF LIFE, Terry went on to write and direct films including JABBERWOCKY, TIME BANDITS and BRAZIL starring Jonathan Pryce and Robert De Niro which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay.
After directing the Oscar nominated THE ADVENTURES OF BARONMUNCHAUSEN Terry went on to direct 3 Americana films: the Oscar-winning THE FISHER KING starring Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges; 12 MONKEYS starring Brad Pitt and Bruce Willis; and FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS, based on the book by Hunter S. Thompson.
Terry has also turned his hand to opera – directing Berlioz’s The Damnation of Faust at the English National Opera as well as Berlioz’s Benvenuto Cellini.
Terry brought his distinctive style to his recent films THE ZERO THEOREM starring Christoph Waltz and Tilda Swinton and the star-studded THE IMAGINARIUM OF DR PARNASSUS.
Terry’s labour of love, THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE, starring Jonathan Pryce and Adam Driver, received the longest standing ovation in the history of closing films at Cannes 2018.
