The film consists of readings by Welles from the book Moby Dick, shot against a blue background with various optical illusions to give the impression of being at sea. Shot in 1971, but never edited. In 1999 Filmmuseum München edited the rushes according to Welles’ play “Moby Dick – Rehearsed”.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
