The Tempest

Saturday, November 15, 2008, 1:00 p.m.

A punk inspired adaptation of Shakespeare's Tempest. Much of the Shakespearian dialogue has been removed and haunting images successfully take its place. Filmed in Stoneleigh Abbey, the film weaves period backgrounds with punk sensibilities of decadence, decay, and magic.
