Dear Mr. Shakespeare from Shola Amoo

Official Selection 2017 Sundance Film Festival

 

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.
