A project led by MxM/Cyril Teste, in partnership with the EESI and Université de Poitiers

Under the artistic direction of Cyril Teste, the students of the EESI (Higher European School of Image) and of the University of Poitiers make three cinematic portraits based on the myth of Hamlet. The works, centered on the issue of power, imagine the rituals at the court of Denmark – the dead king’s funerals, his successor’s wedding and coronation, the banquet… and deal with the way to show the interference of these rituals by the haunting presence of a figure who always returns from the dead: the late King Hamlet.
