If you could produce, direct or edit any movie, which one would it be? And why?

If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to?
I would go back to the 17th century to experience the beginning of different revolutions and see how I and others would react to the new ideologies that the 17th century philosophers were putting out. I would also love to see how people dressed and cooked, and lived in small village homes.
