We will share and discuss two auteur film versions of Henry V: Laurence Olivier’s in 1944 and Kenneth Branagh’s in 1989. To expand our vision of Shakespeare’s great history play and lead to a deeper understanding of his work, we will also screen Dominic Dromgoole’s Globe Theatre production featuring Jamie Parker as well as scenes from a more theatrical and contemporary staging of the play at the Barn Theatre in Cirenchester—a production casting fewer than three women and five men live-streamed in 2020.
