Screening of the film StringCaesar, followed by a discussion and Q&A.
StringCaesar looks at the changing of laws and the formation of states during unknown and unexamined adolescence and the rise to power of the man who would become the emperor Julius Caesar. A timeless story of a young man’s struggle to survive by becoming a power broker, a manipulator and then a dictator – the genesis of a powerful man, with roots in politics, violence, and gang warfare told across the millennia from ancient Rome to modern day prisons by a group of great actors – be they professional or inmates – StringCaesar is filmed entirely within prison walls. Panelists will include:
Paul Schoolman (Director/ producer) who has always passionately believed in the independence of media as tool for social change; Alice Krige – a Rhodes alumnus and film, TV and theatre actress, and a producer; Peter John Christians – actor, lyricist and rapper; Patrick Frieselaar – film lighting technician; Warren Adler – entrepreneur
and actor who co-produced StringCaesar and plays the role of Caesar in the film.
Cast and crew that may join the discussion from the floor include John Kani, Nicola Hanekom, Nobuhle Ketelo, Grant Swanby, Greta Fox, Bo Petersen, Vaneshran Arumugam, Sahil Gill, Denwor Ohlson, Owen Jones, and Jonathan Nkala.
