The screening with be followed by a Q&A with director Rob Curry & actor Zephryn Taitte.

Fifth Column Films' follow-up to Way of the Morris is a euphoric and uplifting 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 his quest to regain his kingdom.

Displaying some similarities to recent transcendent documentaries such as The Arbor and Dreams of a Life, it is also a testament to the transformative power of art.
