JC: A Daring Modern Vision of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar  United States / 2017 / 15 mins

The film, centering around Portia and her husband Brutus, mixes documentary footage, with narrative photography and cutting-edge organic visual effects realized by two-time Academy Award-Winner Jon Meier.   

Led by powerhouse performances by stage and screen luminaries Francesca Manzi and Charles Porter III   , "JC" drills deep into the complexities of marriage, friendship and politics, duty to country. 

Adapted for the screen, directed, edited, produced and co-DPed by multiple award-wining writer/director Matt Boatright-Simon, this action-packed, sexually charged retelling of the Bard's timeless classic couldn't be more timely.
