Faces2013 - 2014
The voices of Portsmouth past have been brought back to life by a variety of individuals of all ages from the diverse communities of Portsmouth.
This extraordinary multi-sensory immersive, audio/visual spectacular is like nothing seen before, featuring people from Portsmouth today (as giant talking heads), telling the story of the city in the lead up to the Great War, 100 years ago.
The new film was projected onto a monumental, purpose-built outdoor screen situated in the starboard arena (next to HMS Victory), Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
Commissioned by the Portsmouth Festivities, in partnership with the National Museum of Royal Navy.
Faces is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and is sponsored by The Portsmouth Grammar School and National Museum of Royal Navy.
Supported by Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Aspex Gallery, University of Portsmouth and Portsmouth City Council.
