Movie Poster

I chose to do my poster this way because as someone who is Maori I noticed how you can take a story like Troilus and Cressida by Shakespeare and add cultural elements in order to make it relatable to others. What this does it makes the story easier to understand for those who are not familiar with the actual story.

There are many cultural similarities that were used in telling this story. Instead of the battle scene the actors performed a traditional war dance called the Haka and delivered their lines in the Maori language.

For those who don’t speak the language you can gain an understanding of what is being said through the emotions.
