Shakespeare Lives: The Tempest

May 27th, 2016

irishfi16aThe Tempest continues to be included in various events and festivals marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. Next month it is being screened as part of Shakespeare Lives at the Irish Film Institute.

#Season: IFI presents Shakespeare Lives, a season of Shakespearean film adaptations this June

The season continues with Derek Jarman’s interpretation of Shakespeare’s final play, The Tempest (June 19th), an evocative depiction of colonialism, revenge, retribution and reconciliation. Starring Heathcote Williams as Prospero, the former Duke of Milan, and Toyah Willcox as his daughter Miranda, Jarman brings a punk sensibility to this production, with wild visuals and rich designs which conceal the film’s modest budget.

Tickets are available now at www.ifi.ie/shakespeare or at the IFI Box Office on 01 679 3477.
