Tom Bradley's extraordinary multi-racial coalition redefined Los Angeles, transformed the national dialogue on race, and encouraged elections of minority candidates nationwide, including our nation's first black president. The film brings into sharp focus issues of police brutality in minority communities and the challenges of police reform.

Born in times of crisis and raised amid civil war, Augustus personified the people he led. He was contradictory: at once capable of brutal violence and tender compassion. He was powerful and enormously charismatic. Augustus forged and polished the image of Roman grandeur that endures to this day. But those who ran afoul of his ambition and invincible will faced tragic consequences: his rivals Marc Antony and Cleopatra, the love poet Ovid, even his own daughter, Julia. The story of Augustan Rome is the story of greatness at a price
