The characters and structure of Shakespeare's play, with Macbeth's naked ambition and endless court intrigues, make the ideal vehicle for telling the B-side to the history of filmmaking: the story of experimental and avant-garde cinema. The stage is set for earthshaking revolutions enabling filmmakers to experiment freely with the creative possibilities of different formats.
