Viveca Lindfors and filmmaker Bert Rashby present a Twentieth Century actress at work on a scene from Euripedes’ 2400-year-old Greek drama, “The Trojan Women.” Shot partly in her home in Manhattan and
partly in her studio, the film examines the process by which the actress creates a character. We follow Ms. Lindfors’ intimate search for identification with the character of Hecuba, Queen of the Trojans. Drawing from her own life experiences, the contemporary actress merges with the woman of ancient times in her outcry against war and violence. Starring Viveca Lindfors. A film by Bert Rashby and J. Lion Weinstock.
