The vulnerability of memory is a driving preoccupation for the filmmakers of The New Nostalgia, who work to capture fast-fading reminiscences, decaying landscapes, and a host of other all-too-brief moments and lives before they disappear entirely. With frank, funny, brutally honest work that embraces complex, nuanced feeling ahead of reductive logic and cheap sentimentality, The New Nostalgia is wistful for the unconventional and the obscure—for people, places, and moments that many would rather forget altogether. The emotional archeologists of The New Nostalgia excavate and disinter, drawing what we’ve dismissed or buried back into the fore of our consciousness.
