Discussion after the film The Hamlet Syndrome
In The Hamlet Syndrome, directors Elwira Niewiera and Piotr Rosolowski introduce a group of professional and unprofessional actors preparing a theatrical production in a small town in Ukraine. During the rehearsals of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, various emotions and memories of the actors are brought to light. The experience of creating a theatre performance can help individuals cope with their own personal traumas, such as wartime experiences on the frontline in Donbas or the rejection of personal sexuality by a conservative society. In a hosted discussion after the screening, the director, Elwira Niewera, will describe how the film was made, its continuing social impact, and her ongoing work with it.
The discussion will take place on 7.11., approx. 16.00, after the film The Hamlet Syndrome, which is screened at 14.30. The venue is The Film and Television Faculty, Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava, Klap cinema.
