IN A change to its autumn programme, Ventnor Film Society has replaced Japanese drama The Wind Rises with Caesar Must Die (PG), which is being screened at Ventnor Arts Club on Tuesday (16) and Wednesday (17). The film focuses on inmates at a high-security prison in Rome, who prepare for a public performance of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, which is being shown in Italian with subtitles.
The change in film is the result of the withdraw of Studio Canal’s licence for DVD screenings of it, said Lin Davis, of the Ventnor Film Society.
Screenings start at 7.30pm. Booking is advised by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
