With director Nadine Patterson in person
Part of the series Changing the Picture, sponsored by Time Warner Inc.
Dir. Nadine Patterson. 2012, 74 mins. Digital projection. With Alexandra Bailey, Brian Anthony Wilson. In this multicultural and experimental Macbeth, a theater company rehearses the play while a documentary crew follows them. This blend of world music, contemporary dance, humor, and cinema verite is a refreshing take on the classic tragedy, and the first film adaptation of Shakespeare directed by an African-American woman.
