UPDATE: [Film] Shakespeare Film Review Cluster on Maqbool and The Banquet
Deadline Extended to 15 August 2008; reviews of Maqbool are especially welcome.
The Banquet and Maqbool: A Film Review Cluster, edited by Alexander Huang
for Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation
Reviews of The Banquet (Ye Yan; aka Legend of the Black Scorpion), a 2006
Chinese film adaptation of Hamlet, and/or Maqbool (Macbeth, 2004), are
invited. Both films, with English subtitles, have been released on DVD.
The review cluster is an innovative, multimedia forum for performance
reviews. The journal encourages contributors to use the online format to
its best advantage, in particular, by imagining how to enhance or
illustrate their essays with multimedia (screen captures, video clips,
etc.). The cluster editor and the journal's technical support team will be
happy to prepare clips from the two films to accompany the reviews.
To learn more about the review cluster, please refer to "Quinnopolis
vs. Hamlet: A Review Cluster" in Borrowers and Lenders 2. 1 (Spring/
Summer 2006): http://lachesis.english.uga.edu/cocoon/borrowers/21_index
Reviews of 500 to 3,000 words are due on 15 August 2008. Email reviews to
Alex Huang (acyhuang_at_psu.edu).
