The Tragedy of Othello

Synopsis
Short. The film tells the story of Iago, a banker who is infuriated by the fact that Othello, his superior, has passed him over to promote the handsome young Cassio to be his vice-president. Also, he suspects that the moor has slept with his wife Emilia. Iago vows revenge and attempts to manipulate his boss while posing as his friend. But the more his hatred for Othello grows, the more personal the consequences of his revenge become, and a conflict ensues from which no one shall emerge unscathed...
