Othello

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

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.

Shown in conjunction with a Cinema Classics Seminar, Othello will be introduced by Paul Wright, Ph.D.
