The places in his plays and the places that he knew. Part 1 (Workprint – 80 minutes).

A contemplative cinematic look at the locations that William Shakespeare wrote of in his plays, both in Britain and beyond, and the places he himself knew and frequented.

Interspersed with scenes from the plays the film also meditatively incorporates images from the natural world that Shakespeare wrote of and can still be found today, as well as his influence on other art forms such as music and painting.
