Hamlet in the Golden Vale, New York-based theater company Roll the Bones’ film adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, will come out on DVD, digital and VOD Oct. 8 from Random Media.
The production follows a team of actors to a 500-year-old castle in Co. Tipperary, Ireland, where — over the course of three weeks — an re-telling of Shakespeare’s greatest work emerges. The film tells a story-within-a-story, blurring the lines between the actors and their characters as eight actors living in close quarters are immersed in the world of Hamlet and the play’s search for meaning.
In addition to the feature, the team also tackled a 360 virtual reality experience with production support from the National Theatre’s Immersive Storytelling Studio and presented two onsite immersive performances for the surrounding community.
