Synopsis

UK Premiere! Film + Q&A. Shakespeare comes to the Caribbean in Hackney-based filmmaker Shakirah Bourne’s take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream. A refreshingly modern, diverse and sprightly take on this classic tale, Bourne’s film brings the Bard into the twenty first century. Theseus and Hippolyta are returning Nationals, arriving back in Barbados to be married during Crop Over. Using the island’s folklore, cultural history, and landscape, and portraying mixed race relationships using a Barbadian and British cast; the film’s Caribbean setting is the perfect backdrop for this tale of mysticism and chaos on the night before the Midsummer celebrations.
