Unbated and Envenom’d
Unbated and Envenom’d is an excerpt of a larger work, Fine Revolution, written, produced and directed by Kevin Black. An immersive, multi-media reimagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Fine Revolution questions the dangerous drift of democracies into polarization and authoritarianism, the use and misuse of AI and the Internet, and the personal costs, mental and emotional, of life migrated online.
