Educators' Workshop
Intercultural Shakespeare on Film
Shakespeare’s plays have universal appeal and continue to resonate with contemporary society not simply through the constant restaging of his plays but through expression in the relatively modern dramatic medium of film. This workshop will examine how Shakespeare’s plays – namely, the tragedies Macbeth, King Lear and Othello - have been wholly transformed and reinvented via the medium of film in a variety of socio-cultural contexts (with a particular emphasis on Asian cinema) and how the study of these films may complement a student’s appreciation of English language and literature. It will also explore the theme of cross-cultural identity as well as the special appeal of Intercultural Shakespeare.

The Presenter: Ken Mizusawa is currently the Subject Head of Language Arts and English Coordinator for the Gifted Education Programme (GEP) at Dunman High School. He designed and implemented the new Language Arts curriculum with the launch of the Dunman High Programme (DHP) in 2005, which fosters a student’s language competence via the interdisciplinary context of film, theatre, politics, philosophy and literature.
