Adaptor 1 Bibliography
Synopsis The poem tells the allegedly true story of Lucrece, a noble woman who was sexually assaulted by the son of Rome’s king. The assault and her suicide afterwards led the people of Rome to rebel against the monarchy and found the republic. McLellan and Liang aim to use the events described in the poem to draw parallels with the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center. The film discusses issues of responsibility, manipulation of people, and how our society has changed since.
