Sneak peek at a new documentary film that asks two simple questions: ‘What lines of Shakespeare do you remember and why?’ The documentary engages participants and audiences in a dialogue about memory, memorisation and why Shakespeare’s words, 400 years after his death, are still so important to us.  Shot mostly in New York City with a wide range of people who share a passion for Shakespeare, the film explores new ways of thinking about memory in our digital age, where learning things by heart is increasingly rare.  Q&A with director Cecilia Rubino afterwards.
