Screening of "STONEBREAKERS" by Valerio Ciriaci

Q&A: Valerio Ciriaci and Isaak J. Liptzin


Event Description

Stonebreakers chronicles the conflicts around monuments that arose in the United States during the George Floyd protests and the 2020 presidential election. Weaving together observational sequences and interviews filmed across the country, the film explores the shifting landscapes of American monumentality by looking at statues as they’re contested and removed, neglected landmarks being reclaimed, and new forms of memorialization emerging for the first time. The portrait of a nation forced to reckon with the darkest chapters of its history, Stonebreakers interrogates the links between memory, myth, and political action.
