Amo Te Vita examines the archaeological imagination departing from a Roman silver ring with an inscription “Amo Te Vita,” or translated “I love you, my love,” excavated on the route of the Rotterdamsebaan. Confronting biases in imagining to whom and how the ring belonged, this short documentary provides a critical perspective to the notion of ancient romance by queering the local history.
