Subject:    UPDATE: Film Review Cluster Deadline Extended

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 15 AUGUST 2008. Reviews of Maqbool are especially welcome.

The Banquet and Maqbool: A Film Review Cluster, edited by Alexander Huang for 
Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation 
(http://www.borrowers.uga.edu)

Reviews of Maqbool (Macbeth, India, 2004), and/or The Banquet (Ye Yan, aka The 
Legend of Black Scorpion), a 2006 Chinese film adaptation of Hamlet are invited. 
Both films, with English subtitles, have been released on DVD.

The review cluster is an innovative, multimedia forum for performance reviews 
offering multiple perspectives. Multiple reviews of the same two films are 
sought. The journal encourages contributors to use the online format to its best 
advantage, in particular, by imagining how to enhance or illustrate their essays 
with multimedia (screen captures, video clips, etc.). The cluster editor and the 
journal's technical support team will be happy to prepare clips from the two 
films to accompany the reviews.

To learn more about the review cluster, please refer to "Quinnopolis vs. Hamlet: 
A Review Cluster" in Borrowers and Lenders 2.1 (Spring/  Summer 2006):

Reviews of 500 to 3,000 words are due on 15 August 2008. Email reviews to Alex
