Film: Hamlet Goes Business


Location: Browning Cinema at DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

An accurate retelling of Hamlet set in a rubber duck factory in Finland. Droll, dark, incredibly effective. Described as the ‘Jim Jarmusch of Finnish cinema,’ Kaurismaki creates a Hamlet unlike any other, and this is a rare appearance.

Directed by Aki Kaurismaki, 1987. 86 min. (NR)

Aki Kaurismaki has been invited to speak.
