The Destruction of Memory: Special screening and Q&A;for the new documentary film

Sun 26

A special screening and Q&A for the new documentary film, The Destruction of Memory

Based on the book of the same name by Robert Bevan, The Destruction of Memory tells the whole story - looking not just at the ongoing actions of Daesh (ISIS) and at other contemporary situations, but revealing the decisions of the past that allowed the issue to remain hidden in the shadows for so many years. Interviewees in the film include the Director-General of UNESCO, the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, as well as diverse and distinguished international experts, whose voices combine to address this urgent issue.

Please join us for this FREE one-off event.

Tickets: In the absence of a ticket price, we would be most grateful if you would consider making a voluntary donation to support this special screening and to help the conservation of cultural heritage in Iraq. Since the conflict WMF continues to work with Iraq’s State Board of Antiquities and Heritage and other partners to record, restore and interpret the ancient city of Babylon’s extraordinary heritage and to build local capacity for the future. Your ongoing support would be greatly appreciated.
