Antigone: Rites of Passion
Directed by Amy Greenfield
From renowned filmmaker Amy Greenfield, this critically acclaimed modern adaptation of Sophocles' classic tragedy combines dance and narrative to tell the story of Antigone, who risks her own life to arrange the burial of her brother Polyneices. The treachery surrounding his death and the threatening behavior of King Creon provide the drama that motivates this daring interpretation of the classic story. Bonus material includes an extensive interview with Classics scholar Dr. Marianne McDonald.
