CAESAR MUST DIE

Deftly melding narrative and documentary in a powerful drama-within- a-drama, the inmates in Rome’s Rebibbia Prison are preparing to stage Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. They begin exploring the text, finding in its tale of fraternity, power and betrayal parallels to their own lives and stories. As we witness the rehearsals, we see the inmates also work through their own conflicts, both internal and between each other.
