There is as much to say about Shola Amoo’s film, “Dear Mr. Shakespeare,” as there is to see and think about in its short five and a half minutes. Shot over two and a half days as part of the Shakespeare Lives 2016 project, this mesmerizing piece uses spoken word and interpretive dance to ponder themes of otherness, blackness, and immigration in Shakespeare’s Othello. “Dear Mr. Shakespeare” is a work of art that you’ll want to watch repeatedly in order to catch each of its brilliantly woven rhymes.
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.
