The Art of Un-War – Maria Niro (New York, New York)

The Art of Un-War reveals an artist's deep commitment to exposing the travesties of war and its aftermath for over five decades. This feature-length documentary explores war, trauma, displacement, and xenophobia through the work of the internationally renowned artist Krzysztof Wodiczko. We witness Wodiczko inviting war veterans, refugees, and the homeless to be creative participants in his projects. As the process unfolds, he records their testimonies. Each project reveals the participant's unscripted plights to the public as he projects their moving images and voices onto historical statues in New York City and other metropolises across the world. The participants’ stories of loss, displacement, abuse and PTSD combined with Wodiczko’s own story of trauma emerge in tandem as the projects become a vehicle for healing. In English, French, Japanese, subtitled. 2021; 63 min.
