BECKETT / FILM PROGRAMME THREE

Director: MISCHKA SAAL & D.A. PENNEBAKER


Prisonniers de Beckett [Prisoners of Beckett]
Actor Jan Jonson decides to direct Waiting for Godot in a high-security prison in Sweden with five prisoners as actors. Their acting proves to be so authentic that Beckett follows the rehearsal from his Parisian home, and the prison authorities allow the production outside prison walls in a Goteborg theatre house.
MISCHKA SAAL • 2005 • 50 MINS.
The Making of Rockaby
The revered American film-maker D.A. Pennebaker (famed for his Dylan documentary Don’t Look Back) chronicles the rehearsal and performance of the world premiere (in New York) of Beckett’s play Rockaby.
D.A. PENNEBAKER • 1982 • 50 MINS.
