Experimental Shakespearean Films
MIHARAYASUHIRO, Paolo Roversi and Studio WOW Unveil a Poetic Film

By: Katie Pagnotta (Rockstar) Jan 4, 13

The MIHARAYASUHIRO, Paolo Roversi and Studio WOW short film ‘Ophelia Has a Dream’ merges Shakespearean sentiment with real-life tragedy.

The short film was inspired by John Everett Millais’ painting ‘Ophelia’ at the Tate Gallery derived from the Shakespeare novel Hamlet. Ophelia is a young noblewoman who commits suicide and her death is viewed as one of the most “poetic deaths” ever. MIHARAYASUHIRO and Paolo Roversi looked upon this painting and character to capture the idea that life is unpredictable and unexpected occurrences happen. The film links to the natural disasters that took place in Japan and the inability to shield oneself from nature. The short film captures Ophelia’s death and with the use of butterflies and fading, ends with a note of hope and peace.

The MIHARAYASUHIRO, Paolo Roversi and Studio WOW short film ‘Ophelia Has a Dream’ is an ode to Shakespeare, Millais and all the people affected by natural disaster.
