Hamlet In Palestine

Visiting Ramallah in 2012 to put on Hamlet and run a workshop for young Palestinian actors, the German stage director Thomas Ostermeier returns to the Jenin refugee camp, where his friend, Juliano Mer-Khamis, was assassinated in the street in 2011. Mixing temporalities and different types of images, the film interleaves encounters with those close to this charismatic director of the Freedom Theatre and excerpts from a documentary that he had made himself.
