November 30 - Film Screening and panel discussion
ABOUT THE SCREENING
Join CyArk and generous hosts Stanford University for a special screening of The Destruction of Memory.
Over the past century, cultural destruction— the purposeful destruction of buildings, books, and art in order to erase collective memory and identity—has wrought catastrophic results on every continent.
But the war is by no means over.
If anything, this kind of cultural warfare has been steadily increasing. This film looks at how and why this has happened, and how the push to protect, salvage, and rebuild has moved in step with the destruction.
Digital Technology offers a valuable tool in both documenting and sharing these incredible places. CyArk has been working with groups around the world to put technology into the hands of those on the front lines and to share their work with the world.
