UK RELEASE DATE: 2 NOVEMBER A euphoric 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 the quest to regain his dukedom.

The film has been selected for festivals including Galway, LIDF, East End and Nantes.
