Telmah

Poster final

To what depths of despair can betrayal and revenge lead?

Produced 2004-2005.

An independent short film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet, Prince of Denmark’. This is the very first film produced by Binky Productions. Despite all its amateur flaws, it is still a gem, as it gave birth to more professional productions.

Images pieced together accompanying a classical musical piece tell the story of Telmah, the Prince who has seen the ghost of his father. Past and future interweave as the story unfolds: the murder of Hamlet’s father, the betrayal of his mother and his uncle, the loss of Ophelia, the loyalty of Horatio and the anger of Leartes. A fight scene transposed with a dance scene and voice-over reflect the inner struggles of Telmah.
