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. A discussion with producer and director Tim Slade follows.
