Chicago Film Festival: Caesar Must Die @ River East

Tickets are $14.  Please arrive early and purchase in advance as some screenings will sell out quickly. 


Original Title: Cesare deve morire
Director: Paolo and Vittorio Taviani
Italian with subtitles
76 min


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.

    I am sorry I couldn't see you guys. I did go to the movie but it was so crowded

    Because meeting up at festival screenings can somethimes be a little tricky, I'd recommend arriving at least a half hour before the posted start time. As we may need to take our seats 5-10 minutes before the film starts, we'll also look to connect after the screening, near the concessions.
