Dear Mr Shakespeare comes from Shola Amoo and was an entry on the joint project by British Council and GREAT called Shakespeare Lives 2016; a celebration of the famous playwright and poet’s 400th anniversary. The film gained much positive attention for its reinterpretation of Shakespeare’s Othello, and particularly explores the racial themes within a historical and contemporary setting; drawing parallels between immigration and blackness in the United Kingdom today.

The script was written by the visual artist and storyteller Phoebe Boswell and directed by the NFTS-grad Shola Amoo.
