The screenplay of ‘Hamlet Revenant’ tells the story of a character caught amidst treasonous political upheavals, family crisis, sexual tensions and ambiguous friendships: a vortex of revenge, doubt and madness out of which no main character escapes. In this original adaptation of Shakespeare’s most iconic work ‘Hamlet Revenant’ brings to the surface the violence and destructive instincts that haunt the human psyche. It is envisaged as an intense motion picture with a haunting and atmospheric visual aesthetic.
