Preceded by a performance from Julius Caesar by Shakespeare for the Masses
This winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlinale deftly melds narrative and documentary in a transcendently powerful drama-within-a-drama. The film was made in Rome's Rebibbia Prison, where the inmates are preparing to stage Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. The prisoners begin to explore the text, finding in its tale of fraternity, power, and betrayal parallels to their own lives and stories. As we witness the rehearsals, beautifully filmed within the prison, we see the inmates also work through their own conflicts, both internal and between each other.
CAESAR MUST DIE (2012) Official Trailer from Richard Lormand on Vimeo.
“How can anyone not adore Paolo and Vittorio Taviani’s Caesar Must Die? It enlarges your notion of what theater and cinema, what art itself, can do—it dissolves every boundary it meets…”
