The Arc of Oblivion & Testudo Hermanni (16TH ANNUAL SCIENCE NEW WAVE FESTIVAL)

105 min


The Arc of Oblivion (Ian Cheney, 2023, United States, 98 min)

"The Arc of Oblivion" explores a quirk of humankind: in a universe that erases its tracks, we humans are hellbent on leaving a trace. Set against the backdrop of the filmmaker's quixotic quest to build an ark in a field in Maine, the film heads far afield - to salt mines in the Alps, fjords in the Arctic, and ancient libraries in the Sahara - to illuminate the strange world of archives, record-keeping, and memory.

Preceded by:

Testudo Hermanni (G. Anthony Svatek, 2023, Austria, 7 min)
