In THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF FILM, Jean-Claude Carrière praised Shakespeare’s THE TEMPEST as a dreamlike fable “truly free of space and time”. Is that why it invites such radical film adaptations, from Paul Mazursky to Peter Greenaway? Now Lois Patiño and Matías Piñeiro join forces to summon forth a shadowy element of the play in allusive fashion: the witch Sycorax, giving her body and voice, not in a cheesy “woke” way, but by using only Shakespeare’s words. Their version of THE TEMPEST is free-floating virtual theatre, forever in-process, reveling in many possible faces, landscapes, and intonations. (Adrian Martin)

This film will be shown as part of the screening SHORT FILM PROGRAMME 4: THE SCOPE OF DREAMS.
