Panel discussion with Iain Sinclair

In French and English with English subtitles

USA | 1987 | col | dir. Jean-Luc Godard, with Woody Allen, Peter Sellars, Burgess Meredith, Jean-Luc Godard, Julie Delpy

Two highly talented and innovative directors – filmdom’s Jean-Luc Godard and the theatre world’s Peter Sellars – join forces in this unusual slant on Shakespeare’sKing Lear. This offbeat adaptation gives the viewer a postmodern taste of Shakespeare through the eyes of a deliberately obscure auteur. The film is set some time after Chernobyl has wiped everything out, and the world is trying to set itself right again. William Shakespeare Jr. the Fifth (Peter Sellars) is faced with the task of restoring his famed ancestor’s lost works.
