Antony & Cleopatra
Directed by David Ian Lee
This taut thriller is a tale of new love in later years as well as a cautionary tale of political brinksmanship in a power struggle that brings war and ruin.

The Winter's Tale
Directed by Santiago Sosa
Shakespeare's fanciful story is set in a fairy tale world of contrasting peoples inspired by the diverse South American cultures during the Gran Colombia era and features original music.
