Hi Hamlet, I’m Ophelia is two short movies realised along a research process meant to allow Mirko Guido to reconstruct one of the most influential theatrical pieces of western history, Hamlet, without having any knowledge of it. The aim of the research is not to re-write the ”original” Hamlet, rather to reconstruct it through our recollection of it, or else through what one believes to remember. The conversation between Hamlet and Ophelia is one of the set-ups proposed throughout the process.
The movies where presented in a video installation at CCAP/c.off Stockholm in the Spring 2018.
Concept and development: Mirko Guido
