The Taviani brothers spent six months following the rehearsals for the stage production of Julius Caesar, as performed by the inmates of the Roman maximum security prison Rebibbia. Shakespeare’s tragedy about friendship and betrayal, power, dishonesty and violence has rarely sounded so persuasive, intense and authentic. Golden Bear at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.

The year 1968 left a permanent mark on over half a million Yugoslavians, among them Maribor-based Metka Autor, a Metalna worker, who left for Germany at 28 in hope of a better tomorrow. In the film, she reminisces about the experience of Maribor immigrant workers while preparing dishes. Newsreel 80 records the day-to-day life of this 81-year-old, who generously and welcomingly understands the hardships of contemporary migrants.
