Julius Caesar

Synopsis
Independent low-budget feature film. "A powerful re-working of William Shakespeare’s epic tale of conspiracy, loyalty and betrayal transposed to a society of post apocalyptic gang culture inhabited by young adults. Caesar rules, with ever increasing confidence and power, over a world that has decayed to a dark and desolate landscape where friendships are brutally ripped apart. Some doubt Caesar’s leadership and plot his demise, blurring the distinctions between friendship loyalty and greed". [Synopsis from the film’s publicity].
