A euphoric blend of drama and documentary, Tempest is both a celebration of contemporary urban youth culture, and a 21st Century re-imagining of Shakespeare's last great play. 17 young actors from South London struggle to put on a production. Their story unfolds alongside Prospero's as The Oval is transformed into Shakespeare's magical island and the outcast Duke conjures the spirits in the quest to regain his dukedom.
Fifth Column Films' latest feature documentary was released in UK cinemas in 2012. It was a centrepiece of National Schools Film Week, the Barbican's Framed Festival, and was selected for numerous mainstream festivals including Galway, LIDF, the East end Festival and Nantes.
