Written and Directed by Parker, Act III, Scene 1 (Best Director/Cinematography Award, 10th City Shorts Film Festival) is a modern reworking of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. It abstracts, contemporizes, and condenses elements of the play into a short film with its focus trained on Act III, Scene 1: the crucial exchange between Hamlet and Ophelia.
