"It enlarges your notion of what theater and cinema, what art itself, can do - it dissolves every boundary it meets." 
- David Edelstein, New York Magazine

 
 "One of the Year's 10 Best Films."
- Marsha McCreadie, Village Voice 
 
 
NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 3, 2013 -[font=" Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;"] Adopt Films is proud to announce the DVD release of [/font]Caesar Must Die[font=" Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;"], a film by Paolo and Vittorio Taviani that won the Golden Bear for Best Picture at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival in 2012.[/font]

[font=" Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;"]Now, this critically-acclaimed, award-winning film comes to DVD on December 24th, with a SRP of $29.95. The film will also become available on iTunes on December 24th.[/font]

[font=" Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;"]The film is directed by Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, whose previous films include [/font]La Notte di San Lorenzo[font=" Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;"] (which won the Grand Prix du Jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 1982) and[/font]Padre Padrone[font=" Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;"] (which won the Palme d'Or in 1977 at the Cannes Film Festival). The brothers, who have been making films together since the 1960s, were also recipients of the Golden Lion for Career Achievement at the Venice Film Festival in 1986.[/font]

[font=" Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;"]The theater in Rome's Rebibbia Prison. A performance of Shakespeare's [/font]Julius Caesar[font=" Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;"] has just ended amidst much applause. The lights dim on the actors and they become prisoners once again as they are accompanied back to their cells. [/font]

[font=" Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;"]Six Months Earlier: The warden and a theater director speak to the inmates about a new project, the staging of Julius Caesar in the prison. The first step is casting, a process both vivid and energetic. The second step is exploration of the text. Shakespeare's universal language helps the inmate-actors to identify with their characters. The path is long and full of anxiety, hope and play. These are the feelings accompanying the inmates at night in their prison cells after each day of rehearsal. [/font]

[font=" Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;"]Who is Giovanni, who plays Caesar? Who is Salavtore-Brutus? For which crimes have they been sentenced to prison? The film does not hide this. The wonder and pride for the play do not always free the inmates from the exasperation of being incarcerated. Their angry confrontations put the show in danger. On the anticipated but feared day of opening night, the audience is numerous and diversified: inmates, actors, students, directors. Julius Caesar is brought back to life, but this time on a stage inside a prison. It's a success.[/font]
