Phoebe Boswell revisits Shakespeare’s Othello

I came across this wonderful video, written by Phoebe Boswell. Art, story and content all intertwine beautifully.

From the Guardian website:

Phoebe Boswell riffs on her conflicted attitudes towards Othello in Dear Mr Shakespeare

Or as in the words of the director of this excellent video:

A reinterpretation of Shakespeare’s Othello
An exploration of Shakespeare’s intentions when writing Othello, exploring the play’s racial themes in a historical and contemporary setting and drawing wider parallels between immigration and blackness in the UK today.

Dear Mr. Shakespeare from Shola Amoo on Vimeo.

It’s well worth to look at other videos published by artist Phoebe Boswell and pay a visit to her website.
