The Cinema Museum, London

Screening: Tempest (2012)

Sun 4 Nov 2012 @ 15:00 · Events

Tempest is both a celebration of contemporary urban youth culture, and a 21st Century re-imagining of Shakespeare’s last great play.

Five years in the making, Fifth Column’s follow-up to Way of the Morris is a euphoric blend of drama and documentary. Seventeen young actors from South London struggle to put on a production. Their story unfolds alongside Prospero’s as The Oval is transformed into Shakespeare’s magical island and the outcast Duke conjures the spirits in his quest to regain his kingdom.

In the aftermath of the youth and student uprisings, the Jubilee celebrations and the Olympic Games, Tempest contributes to the ongoing debate on Englishness and English identity.

Running time: 78 minutes
