(PRWEB UK) 8 October 2014
This 83 min feature documentary, ‘Muse of Fire’, produced by actors and debut film makers, Dan Poole and Giles Terera focuses on their attempt to tackle Shakespeare, the greatest storyteller of all time. The film documents their four year journey around the world where they succeed in securing interviews with actors including James Earl Jones, Tom Hiddleston, Dame Judi Dench, Jude Law, Ewan McGregor, Sir Ian McKellen and director Baz Luhrmann, and attempt to demystify Shakespeare for the general public, actors and students around the world.
Their trip takes in Jude Law’s Hamlet in Denmark, Prisons in Berlin, fighting their way to Baz Luhrmann in Hollywood, sending a cake to Dench to secure an interview and performing under the guidance of Mark Rylance (Actor and Founding Artistic director of the Globe Theatre).
The two friends entirely self-funded the film and their incredible journey has been one of the most eagerly anticipated films showing at Festivals over the last 2 years. With an earlier sell out WORLD PREMIERE as part or the Official selection for the Raindance International Film Festival, a critically acclaimed TV version airing on BBC television in 2013 and every single interview being hosted and soon to be available for free via the web, it promises to be a film that will run and run.
