A video produced by the Accademia Vivarium Novum on the practical use of Hans H.

Rudens: pellicula e comœdia Plautina

Guy Licoppe , 2005
A Latin comedy set in a Greek village by the sea. It was written by T. Maccius Plautus around -211. It tells the story of a girl who had been working as a slave courtesan but is finally recognised by her father and thus found to be actually free, all thanks to the objects found in a chest one of the old man's servants saved from the shipreck that miraculously brought her to his shores. The comedy was adapted for the screen by Dr. Guy Licoppe at Nieuwpoort (Belgium) by the side of the North Sea, with a cast of Latin speakers and scholars with various accents and acting skills. The film is wholly in Latin.
