Exploring Macbeth on film

Mon 14 May, 6pm
Running Time: 1 hour

Join Daniel Rosenthal for an illustrated journey through the vibrant screen history of Macbeth, from orthodox versions by Orson Welles, Roman Polanski and Justin Kurzel, to crime thrillers that reimagine Macbeth as a gangster in 1950s America and 21st-century Mumbai.

Dr Daniel Rosenthal is author of 100 Shakespeare Films (BFI, 2007) and The National Theatre Story (Oberon Books, 2013), which won the Theatre Book Prize. He lectures on Screen Adaptation for the Pembroke–King’s Programme at the University of Cambridge. This talk is followed by a film screening of Maqbool.
