The William Shakespeare classic “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” gets a contemporary makeover from Broadway’s “The Lion King” director Julie Taymor. With cinematography by Rodrigo Prieto (Argo, Frida) and music by Academy Award-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal, this immersive, inventive cinematic experience was filmed during the production’s sold-out, critically lauded run at Brooklyn’s Theatre For A New Audience.
Dir. Julie Taymor, US, 2015
Cast: David Harewood, Tina Benko, Max Casella, Kathryn Hunter
