SEPTEMBER 2012: JPRI Fellow Linda Hoaglund Shoots New Film

hoaglandLinda Hoaglund, JPRI Fellow in Cultural Affairs has completed shooting a new film, Things Left Behind, which is now in post-production. The film focuses on an exhibition of color photographs of clothes and personal effects left behind by those who perished in the atomic bomb at Hiroshima. The photographs, taken by famed Japanese photographer, Ishiuchi Miyako, were on exhibit at the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver, Canada, from late 2011 to early 2012. A film about the transformative power of light, Things Left Behind is a meditation on the potential for art to explore memory and trauma.
