The film, produced by Jilann Spitzmiller and written and directed by Hank Rogerson, bothSanta Feresidents, is a documentary feature that follows a year-long rehearsal and presentation of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” by inmates of aKentuckyprison.
Hailed as “tremendously moving,” the film tells an extraordinary story about the creative process and the power of art to heal. It was a Sundance official selection and has won awards, including “Best in Show” and “Best Documentary” in ten additional festivals. “By the end of this film, you couldn’t imagine Shakespeare performed anywhere else,” wrote the TV Guide reviewer.
As an important part of the Reel New Mexico Independent Film Series, filmmakers representing films shown will discuss and answer questions about their work following the screenings. Jillian Spitzmiller and/or Hank Rogerson will be on hand to discuss the making of “Shakespeare Behind Bars.” The two founded Philomath Films in 1992 and have been working together ever since.
