First theatrical screening of one of the most remarkable cinematic experiences to have been filmed in Tibet
The first theatrical screenings in the US of Sherwood Hu's exhilarating high-altitude Hamlet. Set in ancient Tibet under the shadow of the Himalayas, the film is a visually ravishing historical epic with stunning scenery, richly saturated color, and lush costuming. As the proto-typical tale of oedipal anxiety, or of the terrifying possibilities of taking action in the social world, this film re-invents a story we thought we knew.
This is a Rubin Museum exclusive. The film is not available on DVD.
Presented in association with The Shakespeare Society and Asian CineVision.
12/23 - 1/14
