Nothing is Truer than Truth introduces the Seventeenth Earl of Oxford, A-list party boy on the continental circuit, who traveled to Venice and throughout Italy in 1575-76, discovered commedia dell'arte, and collected the experiences that would become known as the works of Shakespeare. The film argues that De Vere's bisexuality is the reason for the pseudonym “Shake-speare.”
Filmed in Venice, Verona, Mantua, Padua, and Brenta, Italy, at sites visited by De Vere and the settings for The Merchant of Venice, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, and Two Gentlemen of Verona, the film features award-winning actors and directors Sir Derek Jacobi, Mark Rylance, Diane Paulus, and Tina Packer. Nothing Is Truer than Truth premiered at the Independent Film Festival Boston in April 2018 at the historic Brattle Theatre.
