A tragic yet inspiring tale set in ancient Rome that traces the life of a king's daughter, confined to a childhood of slavery, who is chosen by a goddess to disseminate the Tables of the Venus Anh, a set of women’s rights and duties. Years later she is fatally stabbed while defending these principles but is resurrected in the Temple of Jupiter as the goddess of women's rights. While continuing to spread her message, her lifelong dream of marrying Julius Caesar is thwarted when he is murdered a month before their wedding date.
The visual story of Venus Anh has been created by the author. Photos for all 55 scenes in the poem were produced at historic locations in Italy with over 30 Italian models and a local production team. Costumes were produced by Chiara Ferrantini, award-winning designer in Italy's cinematic industry. The images will be exhibited and published separately in 2018. The "making of" documentary film is being produced as well.
Book readings, discussion groups and exciting events including merchandise give-aways will be scheduled in 2018 in Rome, around Europe and beyond. Sign up on this site to receive early notifications by email! Also follow on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!
