Shakespeare behind the bars

­Paolo Taviani – Filmmaker

In their quest for the latest and greatest in filming, most Hollywood directors employ different high-tech techniques like 3D and CGI. Meanwhile, European filmmakers have chosen the ‘artistic’ route. One of the latest examples of this kind of experimental filmmaking was directed by the Taviani brothers from Italy; their movie ‘Caesar Must Die’ became one of 2012’s biggest cinematic breakthroughs. The younger of the Tavianis, Paolo, is my guest on the show today.
