In this seminar, Emily Wardill will discuss her new feature-length film, Game Keepers Without Game (2009). Game Keepers Without Game is based on the seventeenth-century play Life is a Dream (La Vida es Suena) by Pedro Calderón de la Barca. The film takes Calderón's story of an imprisoned prince and translates it into the context of contemporary London. The original's themes of morality, incarceration and truth resurface in Wardill's present-day narrative of a violent child, put up for adoption at an early age, who re-enters the family home as a teenager and a stranger.
