THE SONNET PROJECT is a tapestry of cinematic art that infuses the poetry of William Shakespeare into the poetry of New York City. Spearheaded by Ross Williams and the team at the NY Shakespeare Exchange, all 154 of Shakespeare’s sonnets will be filmed in a carefully chosen New York City location, each sonnet performed by a different actor.
Each film is its own expansive, narrative work of art. By finding a contemporary expression of his poems, the project attempts to reach into the heart of what Shakespeare can reveal to us, and about us.
Dates of Production: Between April 10 - 30, Date TBD
