Notes
Soldiers, Slaves, and Sinners: The Ancient World in Modern Film In this course, we will be exploring the way that modern films interpret and present ancient Greece and Rome to modern audiences. By comparing source materials (many of which were popular entertainment in their own day) with their film counterparts, we will gain a better understanding of the creative choices made by artists inspired by the past, and explore how we too might use history to inspire art. Films covered will include Troy, 300, Gladiator, Quo Vadis, Agora, and the Japanese film Thermae Romae.
