Jojo Rabbit reviewed, Alex Michaelides, protecting artworks from light damage

Taika Waititi’s new film Jojo Rabbit is a satire about a 10-year-old budding Nazi who falls under the spell of his imaginary friend Adolf Hitler, played by the New Zealand writer and director. Jason Solomons reviews the film which also stars Scarlett Johansson, Stephen Merchant and first-time child actor Roman Griffin Davis who has been nominated for a Golden Globe. Alex Michaelides is the author of The Silent Patient, a twisty thriller that has become the biggest selling fiction debut of 2019 internationally and has been optioned by Brad Pitt’s film company. He discusses his love of Agatha Christie, the influence of psychology and Greek myth on his story, and the silencing of women. Damage to artworks, photographs and documents from exposure to light is something to which galleries and archivists have to give serious consideration. Samira visits The National Archives at Kew to find out how they measure and assess the fragility of individual works, and speaks to Dr Lora Angelova, Head of Conservation Research, and Conservator Emilie Cloos about how best to protect and display vulnerable artefacts.
