Dreyer's Medea script online

The Dreyer website has released Carl Th. Dreyer's Medea script. The fleshed-out draft screenplay is based on Euripides’ tragedy Medea. Dreyer did not want to do a slavish adaptation. Rather, he was looking to recreate the real events behind the tragedy. Lars von Trier used Dreyer’s script in 1988 for his TV film Medea.
