'Hiroshima on Film' - Research Talk: Centre for Documentary Research, Queen's University Belfast

Dear All,

The Centre for Documentary Research, Queen's University Belfast, is pleased to welcome Maurizio Cinquegrani, University of Kent, to give a talk on his work, 'Hiroshima on Film', Wednesday 5th May 2021, 16:00 BST via Zoom. Please see below for further information and link to book your place.

Hiroshima, Chūgoku region, Japan, 6 August 1945, 8.15 AM
The Hiroshima Prefectural Products Exhibition Hall was largely destroyed by the atomic blast and its ruins were eventually preserved and used to memorialise the bombing under the name of Atomic Bomb Dome. This talk explores the ways in which the district now occupied by the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, and in particular the Atomic Bomb Dome and its immediate surroundings, have been used in a group of films articulating the memorialisation of the atomic bombing by means of narratives of commemoration and via aesthetics of ruins which have retained the significance of a site of memory as a testimony to war.
