The Walters Art Museum 600 N.Charles Street Baltimore, MD 21201

Come to the Walters Art Museum and watch Laurence Fishburne star as Othello, in the 1995 film interpretation of Shakespeare’s play. This more modern presentation of the classic story provides the viewer with another interpretation of this tragic, but thrilling tale! Duped by the jealous and petty Iago into believing that his beloved wife Desdemona has been unfaithful, Othello takes impulsive action that will haunt him until his dying day. This movie is a great way to prep for the engaging discussion of Othello next Thursday evening with Kwame Kwei-Armah, Artistic Director of CENTERSTAGE, and Leslie King-Hammond, Graduate Dean Emeritus and Founding Director for the Center for Race and Culture at MICA.
