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.
