Surviving Don Quixote [electronic resource]

Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
The protagonist of Don Quixote finds that he has "survived" for centuries after being created by Miguel de Cervantes, and now wants to learn about his origins-how, where, and why his character came into being. In this film Don Quixote and his loyal squire travel throughout Andalusia searching for information about the life of Cervantes, and the personal and historical events that may have influenced his work. Commentary from biographers and historians is interspersed with the narrative, along with gorgeous footage of the landscape, art, and architecture of Cordoba and Seville.
