SYNOPSIS

A SCREEN ADAPTATION OF LADY MACBETH'S SOLILOQUY FROM SHAKESPEARE'S PLAY MACBETH, ACT 5, SCENE 1.

LADY MACBETH IS DESTINED TO RELIVE HER MOST TRAGIC MOMENT IN A NEVER - ENDING LOOP FOR ETERNITY UNDER THE PROBING GAZE OF A NEW LIFE FORM.


DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

What would happen if Lady Macbeth were destined to relive her most harrowing moment for all eternity? What could someone, or something, for whom human emotions were totally incomprehensible learn by observing Lady Macbeth’s agony over and over again? 
 

Those were just two of the questions I asked myself as I started writing what became the story of our film. 

It all started when the passionately talented Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni came up with the idea of making a short film based on Lady Macbeth’s soliloquy in act 5, scene 1 of Macbeth. I thought it would be a privilege to adapt one of the Bard’s most famous soliloquies from one of his most famous plays. Without mentioning that having Coralina as my leading lady was an opportunity too good to miss! 

So I dove headfirst into an adaptation of one of the most adapted writers in history, fueled by my endless fascination for Shakespeare’s ability to capture the very essence of human nature and my admiration for his ability to move us, entertain us, make us think. And, above all, make us feel. 

And then I used his marvelous writing as a springboard to come up with my own wild flight of fancy. 

I hope the resulting short film ends up entertaining you, moving you and making you think. And, above all, I truly hope it makes you feel .
