Kitchen Hamlet, an independent film featuring Geoffrey Nelson as “Polonius,” has been making the rounds of film festivals across the country.
Beginning with the Southern Appalachian Film Festival in Knoxville, Tennessee last October, Hamlet has been shown at the Garden State Film Festival in New Jersey, the Appalachian Film Festival in West Virginia, the Tupelo Film Festival in Mississippi (2nd Place, Features), Seattle True Independent Film Festival in Washington, the Landlocked Film Festival in Iowa, the Salem Film Festival in Oregon and at the Indie Gathering International Film Festival (Honorable Mention, Feature Drama) in Cleveland, Ohio.
Kitchen Hamlet uses the original text of Shakespeare’s play but places the action in a contemporary, domestic setting. Filmed in Gambier, Ohio in the summer of 2008, Hamlet features Patrick Shaw as “Hamlet,” Kate Clarvoe as “Gertrude,” and Jonathan Putnam as “Claudius.” Daniel Kramer produced and directed the film.
