"Macbeth" Prerelease Screening
"Our film is not a response," co-writer/Shakespeare advisor Judith Buchanan noted to audiences prior to Notre Dame's exclusive pre-release screening of Kit Monkman's Macbeth. "It's a quirky, experimental intervention." Audiences at the Browning Cinema were the first in the United States to experience the film, slated for European release in spring 2018. Shot entirely against green screens, Macbeth offers a dynamic new interpretation of the famed tragedy by staging the action entirely within a claustrophobic yet strangely incomplete world, drawing the focus more strongly to the characters' internal strife.
