    All the World's a Screen: Shakespeare on Film

    All the World's a Screen: Shakespeare on Film

    2016     Musical documentary     United Kingdom

    This new documentary from BBC Arena and Film London offers a compact but meaty exploration of cinematic Shakespearean adaptations from 1899 to the present day, replete with fascinating clips, archival interviews and behind-the-scenes footage. Ranging from glossy Hollywood Shakespeares to Laurence Olivier's internationally acclaimed Henry V and Hamlet and Orson Welles' Poverty Row masterpieces, the celebrated foreign-language versions of Akira Kurosawa and Grigori Kozintsev to Bollywood riffs, from westerns to musicals and even outer space, All the World's a Screen is a great introduction to the rich legacy of celluloid Shakespeare.
