“If you never understood Shakespeare, watch this film!” RAINDANCE FILM FESTIVAL
This unique feature documentary follows two actors, Dan Poole and Giles Terera, as they travel the world to find out everything they can about tackling the greatest writer of them all. “Together they have directed and produced an inspiring film that aims to demystify and illuminate Shakespeare’s work for everyone: from actors, directors, theatre goers, students, to the man on the street.”
Their trip takes in Jude Law’s Hamlet in Denmark, Prisons in Berlin, fighting their way to Baz Luhrmann in Hollywood, sending a cake to Judi Dench to secure an interview, and performing under the guidance of Mark Rylance (Actor and Founding Artistic Director of the Globe Theatre).
The two friends entirely self-funded the film and their incredible journey has been one of the most eagerly anticipated films showing at Festivals over the last 2 years. With a sell out WORLD PREMIERE as part or the Official Selection for the Raindance International Film Festival, a critically acclaimed TV version airing on BBC television in 2013 and every single interview being hosted and soon to be available for free via the web, it promises to be a film that will run and run.
