- Director:Tim Slade
Over the past century, cultural destruction has wrought catastrophic results across the globe. This war against culture is not over - it's been steadily increasing. In Syria and Iraq, the ‘cradle of civilization’, millennia of culture are being destroyed. 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.
Tim's films have screened internationally. He has directed documentaries such as 4, which was released theatrically and won a Gold Hugo, as well as receiving nominations at Banff, an International Documentary Association Award and two AFI (Australian Film Institute) awards, as well as television documentaries. He has also directed drama, including the shorts Every Other Weekend and I Was Robert Mitchum. His films have screened at more than 60 international film festivals.
