Ancient Rome on Film


This research project on Ancient Rome on Film makes a vital contribution to the field of popular receptions of classical culture. It explores how and why film constructs a richly imagined, immersive Roman world and investigates how millions worldwide have experienced that past world. The regular screenings run in association with the project make accessible to an international public a significant body of archival films that constitute a rich yet fragile cultural heritage in urgent need of restoration.
