This short video intends to play up on the fact that “the memory is not something found or collected in the brain of human, but something that is made, and continually re-made.” That is to say, the archives are not “passive storehouses of old stuff,“; rather, they are “active sites where social power is negotiated, contested, confirmed.” Through archives and memory be re-made, “the past is controlled. ” The video supported by one of James Opp, John C. Walsh’s theories.(James O, John C. Walsh 2010:302)
