Hamlet (2002)


This stunning version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet by internationally acclaimed director Peter Brook has stripped the work of what he refers to as 'the inessential' to focus on the myth at the heart of the play. Simply staged and accompanied by a haunting soundscape ranging from muffled bells to birds in flight, this powerfully original and exciting production lends itself perfectly to the screen.
