A screening of the film Stonebreakers, followed by a panel featuring Valerio Ciriaci (Director), Isaak J. Liptzin (Producer) in discussion with educators and artists from the culture and heritage sectors.

Stonebreakers chronicles the fight around historical memory in the US that exploded in 2020 during the Black Lives Matter protests and the presidential election. It interrogates understandings of national narratives and foundational myths (Columbus and the Founding Fathers) and explores debates around contested monuments, statues and landmarks. The film premiered last year at Festival dei Popoli in Florence, where it won three awards.

The panel will feature:

Valerio Ciriaci - Director

Isaak J. Liptzin - Producer

Dr. David Wright - Associate Professor in the Centre for Cultural and Media Policy Studies at the University of Warwick
