Shakespeare Film ‘H4' Starring Harry Lennix To Screen At Chicago Int'l Film Fest Next Month

Last year, when he was at the 48th annual Chicago International Film Festival for the showing of his film Mr. Sophistication, I spoke with Harry Lennix, and he told that post–production had just been completed on his film project, H4, directed by Paul Quinn, and he was very excited and proud of the film.

Last year, when he was at the 48th annual Chicago International Film Festival for the showing of his film Mr. Sophistication, I spoke with Harry Lennix, and he told that post–production had just been completed on his film project, H4, directed by Paul Quinn, and he was very excited and proud of the film.

A “re-imaging”: of Shakespeare’s Henry IV Part 1 and Part II, set in modern day Los Angeles, the film is described as “the first Shakespeare adaptation to deal with contemporary African-American issues.” It tells the story of Henry’s unreliable son Hal's coming of age, as events compel him to increase power and responsibility, when he becomes the face of a new nation and prepares to succeed his father.

Along with Lennix (who is vying for the title of the hardest working man in films with his recent role in this summer’s Man of Steel, his role on NBC’s new series The Blacklist which premieres next week, and another six films already in post-production), the film also stars Keith David, Angus Macfadyen, Candice Coke Jeryl Prescott and the late Heavy D, in what was his final film role.

Now H4 will be screened at this year's 49th annual Chicago International Film Festival next month, on Sat Oct. 19, 8:30PM and the following day on Sunday Oct. 20 at 2PM.

Go HERE to find out more information on tickets.

Over the next few days, I’ll be reporting on more films screening at this year’s CIFF, which runs from Oct. 10-24.
