Othello

Thursday, April 26

Film Suburbs & Beyond

Othello, a Moorish general in the Venetian army, is consumed by jealousy when his treacherous ensign, Iago, convinces him of his young wife’s infidelity. Drawing from Shakespeare and pulp cinema alike, Orson Welles’s Grand Prix-winning adaptation plays like a medieval film noir—hypercinematic, bathed in shadow, thick with corruption and moral frailty. 


France/Italy/Morocco – 1 hr 30 min
1951 · d. Orson Welles
Starring Orson Welles, Micheal MacLiammoir, Robert Cooke, Suzanne Cloutier
