"Shakespeare Outside the Box" is a mini-film festival of unusual filmed productions of Shakespeare plays. Our final film in this four film series is Oliver Parker's "Othello". This 1995 film has the distinction of being the first filmed version of "Othello" with an black actor playing the title role: Laurence Fishburne. Kenneth Branagh as Iago and Irene Jacob as Desdemona also star in this historically important production.
