Storyline

In 2004 the Oregon State Hospital, former site of the film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, revealed the existence of thousands of corroded copper urns, each containing cremated human remains. Photographer David Maisel captured these beautifully unique urns of forgotten souls on film. Exhibiting their photos revealed secrets, influenced political decisions and reunited families. This film will show how art can stimulate social change and will document the ongoing controversy surrounding a proper memorial for these institutionalized casualties. Written by Anonymous

Libarary of Dust, Documentary 2010
20 November 2011 | by (Napa, California) – See all my reviews

Beautiful, touching film about the thousands of Oregon State Hospital forgotten copper urns containing cremated human ashes. With time each one of those copper urns corroded as a unique and beautiful art piece revealing the essence of the remains of these forgotten souls. The photographs of the corroded copper urns used in the film have a strong moving impact to bring the life of those forgotten human beings to the present time with an incredible force of natural effect. After seeing this film, some families went to reclaim their forgotten one that was not forgotten after all. This film was their reminder. The statistics were very impressive. This documentary flows like a poem dedicated to the forgotten human beings who have been admitted, then left and abandoned in State Hospitals and sometimes quite unjustly. It intrinsically touches our own humanity.
