OVID and the Art of Love

OVID and the Art of Love

The young Ovid enrages the brutal emperor by writing a provocative guide to love and runs for his life. Set in a world filled with togas, hip-hop, sneakers, oration, and poetry slams (think Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet or Hamilton), this film follows the life of the popular, witty, and controversial Roman poet, set in a lively mash-up of contemporary Detroit and ancient Rome.
