MR. YAMADA

Japanese male, 50+.  Legendary Head Master of a prestigious theater school in Tokyo.  A respected director and an actor of note in his own right, who expects no less than full preparation at every rehearsal.  A man of few words with an inscrutable aura.  Currently directing the school's production of Othello.  Othello is being played by JASON, an African American actor/exchange student who has achieved success in American indie films.  After a rough start, through patience and dialogue MR. YAMADA and JASON are able to learn a common truth that transcends historical, racial and cultural differences.  By means of the art and craft of acting and the archetypal genius of Shakespeare, the channel to bridge this gap is built.  MR. YAMADA is a teacher who is willing to learn.
