Event Description

Norwich University School of Architecture + Art will screen “Destruction of Memory,” a film about cultural destruction during times of war, and host the director, Tim Slade, on Friday, Jan. 17, in the Mack Hall Auditorium at 4 p.m. A brief talk by the director will be followed by a Q&A.

Part of the School of Architecture + Art Lecture Series, this event is free and open to the public.

Based on the book of the same title by Robert Bevan, “Destruction of Memory” offers a potent exploration into the tragedy of cultural destruction when the built environment becomes the target in warfare. Including interviews with a wide range of scholars and footage of affected sites, the film offers a timely opportunity to consider an aspect of conflict that is often overlooked but has long-lasting import.

Slade, originally from Sydney, Australia, is based in New York City. He is a writer, director, and producer, whose work has screened on television and in theatres across six continents. Previously a senior and executive producer at Spinifex Group (2009-2014), he is currently a writer, director, and producer with Vast Productions. He has won a Gold Plaque at the Chicago HUGO Television Awards and received nominations at the Banff World Television Festival and the International Documentary Association Awards. He has also received nominations for two Australian Film Institute Awards, including Best Documentary Feature.

“The Destruction of Memory” has been broadcast in more than 20 regions, including German-speaking regions on ZDF, and has screened widely internationally, including an official viewing for the United Nations. To date, it has claimed four festival awards, including Grand Prize and Audience Awards at the Arkhaios Film Festival.
