Video 06: Come To Me

What is it?

This year the British Council has commissioned a series of films using Shakespeare's works as inspiration as part of Shakespeare Lives 2016; an unprecedented global programme celebrating William Shakespeare’s work and his influence on culture, education and society on the 400th anniversary of his death.

The sixth in our short film collection celebrating Shakespeare's legacy in 2016, Come To Me takes inspiration from the songs found in As You Like It, and explores the lifecycle of a romantic relationship reflected in the changing seasons. Director Prasanna Puwanarajah, and musician Anjana Vasan present a musical triptych, which takes our audience on an emotional journey charting the beginning of a relationship through to its disintegration.
