The European Union Film Festival opens at the British Council in Ahmedabad with a production of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus as this is the 400th anniversary year of Shakespeare’s death.

About the Film - Coriolanus (Duration - 123 minutes) 

A 2011 adaptation of the play directed by Ralph Fiennes, Coriolanus is his directorial debut, and presents a contemporary day version of Rome, where riots are in progress after stores of grain are withheld from citizens and civil liberties are constrained. In this contemporary version, Ralph Fiennes has created a vibrant interpretation of Coriolanus with political relevance.

Entry is free and open to 15 year olds and above (members and non-members).
