1700 years ago the wall of Lucus Augusti watched over the so called world, in the present the descendants of the Roman and Celtic people that lived in the area, recreate the most important festival about the Roman Emporium in the world.
In a moment like this with a huge economic crisis in Spain, the people from this little city in the north-west of the country demonstrates a great willpower expending most of the year trying to make this festival even better year by year, all to show the ancient culture that they have and to make people happy for some days as one of our senators will say in the documentary.
12 years ago everything began because of the proclamation of the wall of the city as World Heritage, only some associations were attending that day to this event, today all the city becomes a little part of the old Rome, bringing back the Gladiators fighting for their lives in the Circus, old Gods and mythological creatures running all over the city and the Soldiers and Praetorians looking to keep save the Emperor Cesar Augusto.
The Great Lucus Augusti comes back to live every middle week of June to give this people a little bit of hope in the difficult moment they are passing through.
The Taiwanese Ota Hsieh the Colombian Andres Lemonk And the Galician Brais Revalderia shot this movie during the festival in 2012, after completing some of the scenes in 2013 like the shots about the restored roman bridge and Viladonga´s Castro the film was released to participate in the International film festival circuit in June 2013.
