Not interpreted, probably not even captioned, but, might be fun to watch even the images…

The Complete Walk will form the centrepiece of London’s celebration of Shakespeare’s life and work. Featuring some of the UK’s best-known actors, the films are shot on location, capturing the astonishing breadth of Shakespeare’s global imagination, from Cleopatra beside the pyramids to Shylock in Venice’s Jewish ghetto and Hamlet on the rocks of Elsinore. Made by talented young directors, each film includes fresh material, interwoven with clips from Globe plays, footage from the BFI’s Silent Shakespeare films and newly created animation. Each of the 37 screens will show one 10 minute film on a loop for the duration of the weekend. Families, Shakespeare enthusiasts, visitors and the general public can experience The Complete Walk of the complete works, or dip in and out as they stroll along the riverside.
