Caesar Must Die

Caesar Must Die

Original Title: Cesare deve morire
Directors: Paolo Taviani, Vittorio Taviani
Italian with subtitles
76 min min
World Cinema

Winner of the Golden Bear at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, this docudrama from the Taviani brothers (Padre Padrone) captures the preparations for a staging of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar in Rome’s Rebibbia Prison. The performers - inmates, some of whom have been jailed for murder and other violent crimes - bring powerful new layers of meaning and emotion to the canonical play. Caesar Must Die is a memorable, emotional meditation on the transformative power of artistic production.
