The Rubin Screening: Fiona Shaw + Simon Critchley
Millions of young cinemagoers know her only as Petunia Dursley in the Harry Potter films, yet Fiona Shaw is regarded as one of the finest classical actresses of her generation. Here she joins philosopher Simon Critchley to talk about nothing: from the nothingness in Beckett, the emptiness in Eliot, to the hollowness of Ibsen.
This is a screening of a filmed conversation.
