Three Days (of Hamlet) Sneak Preview and Tea Party
Tuesday, May 3rd • 3 - 6 PM • Landmark Theatres at Pico and Westwood
Join BritWeek in supporting UK/US independent film, as we present a screening of TMG's new Hamlet-based, fantasy documentary Three Days. Starring Alex Hyde-White, Tom Badal, Richard Chamberlain, Stefanie Powers and Peter Woodward, Three Days holds 'the mirror up to (human) nature' in a most unique indie film way.
Three Days is about one man's journey to play the role of a lifetime, no matter what! A "cliff-notes classic" version of Hamlet, the film centers on a troupe of players who gather to rehearse and perform a stage-reading of one of Western Civilizations greatest melodramas. It is filmed in a first person, TV-interview style where Reality intrudes as the creative process is both enabled and disrupted, much like the Danish Court where the action takes place. When faced with the chance to do the play, the question turns to "whether they can do it... in three days,” and then ultimately to "why?" The answers are quite personal and resonate with all--parents and children alike.
Before and After: Tea Party and Q & A
Mingle with some of our creative team before the screening at Landmark, as we turn the lobby bar into a tea house for the 3pm Keurig and King's Head Tea Party. Scheduled to attend are cast-members Stefanie Powers, Alex Hyde-White, Iva Hasperger, Tom Badal and Co-Producer Mara New. Canapes provided by Ye Olde King's Head of Santa Monica. Coffee and Tea poured by Keurig, a division of Green Mountain Coffee Company. A Keurig brewer and K-Cups will be raffled during the Tea Party.
After the 4 PM screening, join the filmmaker and cast members for an exclusive Q & A.

BritWeek Welcomes City Hearts / Kids Say 'yes' to Arts Students
City Hearts is a non-profit organization that has offered free visual and performing arts classes to children in Los Angeles for over 19 years. Established in 1984 by criminal defense attorneys Sherry and Bob Jason, City Hearts was founded on the belief that the Arts are the most powerful tools to communicate with and rehabilitate troubled youth at risk from gangs and drugs. Serving over 500 students from the Greater L.A. area, City Hearts has become an integral part of the preventive and rehabilitative effort in LA's inner city, and serves as a model for youth diversion programs across the country.
