This four-part screening programme invites us to think about the role of archives in shaping collective memory, histories and stories. Archives were created as centralised repositories of record-producing public agencies in an attempt to preserve a singular, official history. Across the centuries, colonialists, dictators, conquistadors, all understood that to control history is to wield power to shape the future. However, history is mutable, partial, messy, and the story of the future rests on a more truthful, nuanced account.
