AMERICAN CINCINNATUS, 12min,. USA, Documentary
Directed by Matt Wood
Can you imagine Julius Caesar willingly turning back power? History is littered with examples of military men who seized power and were reluctant to give it up. Yet two remarkable individuals, separated by 2,000 years, both made the decision to give up near-absolute authority in favor of life as a citizen. George Washington, Americaï¿½s first president, and Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus, an early Roman statesman, lived dramatically different lives, but both understood the nature and importance of civic virtue. Washingtonï¿½s decision to not seek a third term as president set a lasting precedent for the peaceful transition of power that endures today.
