Legendary director Peter Brook delves into the human mind

Many consider him one of the most visionary and influential directors of the past half century. In a career spanning over 70 years and several disciplines from theatre, film and opera, he’s continually pushed the limits.

British by birth and Parisian by adoption, director Peter Brook joins Jade Barker on set to talk about his incredible career. Brook explains why he decided to explore the workings of the human mind in his latest production "The Valley of Astonishment", how Shakespeare will always be relevant and why he decided to call France home for over four decades.
