I Am Shakespeare: The Henry Green Story (Stephen Dest, 2017) – 81min – Opening night film NHdocs2017
I AM SHAKESPEARE: The Henry Green Story, chronicles the true life story of 19 year old Henry Green, living a dual life as a brilliant young actor and inner-city gang member, who was brutally shot and left for dead just shortly after his inspiring performance in Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and his remarkable (against all odds) recovery/intestinal transplant received by a 13 year old boy (Jack) who was killed in a car accident on the other side of the country but who still managed to save Henry’s life.
