Synopsis

UK Premiere!

Film + Q&A.


Shakespeare comes to the Caribbean in Hackney-based film producer Melissa Simmond’s take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream. An award winning refreshingly modern, diverse and sprightly take on this classic tale, Barbadian writer/director Shakirah 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 the Crop Over Festival. 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.
