Act III, Scene 1 is a modern reworking of William Shakespeare's Hamlet. It abstracts, contemporizes, and condenses elements of Shakespeare's Hamlet into a short film with its focus trained on Act III, Scene 1: the crucial exchange between Hamlet and Ophelia.
A young prince embarks on a path of vengeance, sacrificing an authentic "romantic love" for a lofty idealism, driving himself and his lover insane. Last Wave's revision uses the classical tale of Hamlet to contemplate domesticity, anthropology, power dynamics, gender roles, politics, etc.; and ultimately to tell its own story.
