If It Be Love

Synopsis
Low-budget independent film. Inspired by Shakespeare’s classic texts, the film weaves together four portraits of varying and contrasting faces of love - the passion of Antony and Cleopatra, the tragic rejection of Ophelia by Hamlet, the haunting manipulation of Macbeth by his Lady, and the jealousy of Othello. The audience is taken on a journey unfolding in four chapters. A relationship driven by wild excitement, to loss which breaks the spirit, evoking a desperate need to regain control but leading to destruction and inevitable death.
