Peter Brook: Behind the Camera

Series Site

"On the occasion of the US premiere of Battlefield—visionary director Peter Brook’s return to the BAM Next Wave Festival and to the source material of his groundbreaking staging of The Mahabharata—BAMcinématek surveys Brook’s equally iconoclastic film work. Like his theater productions, Brook’s films shed new light on often well-known texts, employing indelible images and sometimes radical aesthetic devices to cut to the heart of a subject. His work—adventurous, stimulating, and richly sensorial—is an ongoing search for the essential truths of human nature." —BAM
