Shakespeare Lives


The British Council commissioned a series of films to celebrate the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death. Director David Wilson’s contribution reinterprets Act 1, Scene V of Macbeth. The two-minute film starts with actress Vicky McClure as Lady Macbeth in a banal suburban house. The tension quickly escalates until [spoiler alert] the film shifts into an hallucinatory animation by Ian Miller.
