Terry Gilliam Introduces Karel Zeman's Munchausen

A few days ago I posted a picture of the new Criterion Blu-ray set Three Fantastic Journeys by Karel Zeman. In the above short video, filmmaker Terry Gilliam introduces a special screening of 1962's The Fabulous Baron Munchausen, one of Czech filmmaker Karel Zeman's masterworks. Gilliam's enthusiasm for the fantastic film is infectious. He talks briefly about a certain direct connection to The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988), his own filmed version of the fictitious German nobleman's tall tales.
