The Rape of the Sabine Women documents the film created by Eve Sussman and the Rufus Corporation that premiered in November 2006. Film stills and behind the scenes production photos illustrate the narrative and the process of creating the work. Beyond the context of the artwork, the book offers another spin on the ancient Roman myth that is the abduction of the Sabine Women.
