Under Surveillance

Description

As evidenced throughout history, war and authoritarianism always constitutes a threat against the voice of the people.
Through the lens of war and censorship, these films critically examine the construction and reproduction of national identity and memory, and expose the dynamic of silencing and erasure involved in fashioning the national community. How do we shape our national identity in real-time? And after our own memory fades, how do we go about rebuilding the nation and writing a common history?
