Join us as Nebraska Shakespeare teams up with Aksarben Cinema (67th and Center) to bring you films inspired by Shakespeare's life and plays.

Macbeth is a daring member of the Scottish military who receives a revelation from three menacing sorceresses that he will someday become the King of Scotland. This information gives him a thirst for power, and with prompting from his wife, Lady Macbeth, he kills the current leader in order to take the throne. But he must continue to commit murders to keep his actions a secret, and soon, no one is safe. Starring Ian McKellan and Judi Dench.

Following the film, a discussion covering the film itself, the history of its production, and the interpretation of Shakespeare's texts, is led by Vincent Carlson-Brown, NS Artistic Director and guest scholar, D. Scott Glasser, Professor and Theatre Coordinator at UNO's School of the Arts.
