Al Pacino’s documentary sees a cast of stage actors and Hollywood stars gather to work on Shakespeare’s Richard III.

The screening will feature a special introductory talk by Dr Bronwen Price, a specialist in seventeenth-century literature and culture

This is a film about how to act and produce Shakespeare. It is also, not incidentally, a documentary about some days in the life of an actor who loves his craft and brims with curiosity and good humour.Roger Ebert
