Synopsis: (Drama, Crime) Reality is not always as it appears. Criminal intent is not always as simple as we perceive it. A fine summer morning like many others in a city like any other. Suddenly gunshots echo along a downtown street. A bank is under attack. Hostages are taken. Two police officers - one approaching the end of her career, the other consumed by a passion for ancient Rome - try to untangle the unusual and unexplainably cruel incident, only to find themselves before an answer that seems impossible.

Crew: Writers: Luca Elmi; Producers: Hunter Curry, Drew Ingram; Hunter Curry Cinematographer, Stefania Calatroni editor, Marcello De Toffoli music

Production Background & Fun Facts: The film was shot in KY because director/writer Luca Elmi met producer/DOP Hunter Curry at another Festival in Florida. The two connected and thought it would be fun to make a small film together. Roman Citizen was shot with 5 cameras, 113 extras and 70 crew members. Mercifully, they didn't want to make a big film.

Festivals & Accolades: Central Florida Film Festival, Carmel International Film Festival, Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival
