Filmed on the southernmost tip of Madagascar, Makibefo is a bold, alternative version of Macbeth, performed by non-professional actors from a small fishing community, who had never seen a film before, nor heard Shakespeare. Often improvised, this intense take on a man’s quest for power through bloody ambition was shaped through raw experimentation and unconstrained emotion.
