Jail Caesar

A remarkable and unique film about the early life of Julius Caesar, told by renowned actors alongside prison inmates in high security prisons on three different continents.

The raw, primal force and passion of the inmates juxtaposed with the craft and sophistication of celebrated classical actors headed by Sir Derek Jacobi, creates a fascinating dialogue between the brute struggle for power in ancient times and incarceration in the 21st century.

The story’s themes of passion, rivalry, friendship and violence bridges continents and millennia. Derek Jacobi’s chilling bravura performance combined with the daring concept gives the film its recognized high impact and renders the experience unforgettable.
