An unfinished and unreleased film by the legendary filmmaker Orson Welles, The Other Side of the Wind, is finally going to get its release in theaters, after nearly four decades of sitting in a vault, reports The Guardian.

The Other Side of the Wind portrays the last hours of an ageing film director, played by John Huston.

Soon after it was shot in 1972, an ownership dispute forced the film into a vault where it stayed for the next several decades. Negotiations are now being made for the film to be finished and for it to be seen by the public.

Françoise Widhoff, a producer who collaborated with Orson Welles on his F for Fake, spent a month on set of the unedited film, which she described as a masterpiece - "the way it's shot, the way it's acted. It's very modern and free."
