Watch: 18-Minute Talk With Terry Gilliam About The Making Of 'Brazil'

It has been nearly thirty years since Terry Gilliam‘s satirical sci-fi “Brazil” opened on screens, and he couldn’t have known how prophetic his tale of a man caught in the government machine would be. Perhaps more than ever we live in an era of bureaucratic overreach and surveillance-state paranoia, which makes this the right time to reflect on the film.

Gilliam recently stopped by BFI to talk about his influential picture, and he touches upon many aspects of the production of “Brazil.” He reveals the reason behind the clash he had with screenwriter Tom Stoppard (the pair are still friends), how the themes of the movie are perhaps more resonant than ever, and some of smaller details behind the making of the movie including make-up, costuming, and working with his then-four-year-old daughter. Gilliam, as usual, is a delight and is eager to chat, so give it a look below.
