PAFA Performances | "Destruction of Memory" Film Screening

In Syria and Iraq, the ‘cradle of civilization’, millennia of culture are being destroyed by war, requiring heroic individuals to fight back, risking and losing their lives to protect not just other human beings, but an entire cultural identity. Based on the book of the same name by Robert Bevan, The Destruction of Memory looks at the ongoing actions of Daesh (ISIS) and other contemporary situations to reveal the legislations and policy decisions that have allowed this cultural destruction to remain hidden in the shadows for the last century.

Cost: Members: Free | Public: $15

Location: Rhoden Arts Center, Samuel M.V. Hamilton
