July 7: Keith Jones – Around the Globe
Keith Jones – Around the Globe: Shakespeare Films Around the World
Adaptations and derivatives of Shakespeare’s plays come out every year. From the Oscar-Winning Shakespeare in Love to Makibefo, a version of Macbeth filmed in Madagascar, audiences are presented with new settings for Shakespeare’s plots, characters—even his biography. But what are we to think of these departures from or revisitings of Shakespeare? Keith Jones will present film versions of plays by Shakespeare from around the world and start a conversation that is sure to be fascinating.
