Adaptations

Since its inception, cinema has dialogued with, incorporated, and even cannibalized other art forms—pre-existing texts—and the immense question of adaption has long been a foundation of film art. To explore this vast, challenging basis of storytelling, we offer this eclectic on-going series, which ranges from spry reinventions of Shakespeare on the streets of Buenos Aires to a freewheeling Portuguese adaptation of timeless Middle Eastern folk tales.
