REMEMBERING/FORGETTING by Svetlana Boym (1959-2015) screened at Harvard


"Remembering Forgetting" by the late Svetlana Boym (1959-2015) was screened on Tuesday at Harvard University, Dana Palmer House.

It was a honor for me to write the music and designing the sound to the art film, that was left unfinished because of the death of the author in early August, and now has a shape thanks to Svetlana's pupil Janna Kyllästinen. Unfinished means infinite, that means eternal.

Svetlana Boym is the author of "The Future of Nostalgia", well depicted by this article on the New Yorker:
