Nordic Noir Films - Talk & Films

Saturday afternoon treat. Dr Richard McCulloch from the University of Huddersfield will be talking about his specialist subject – Nordic Noir, illustrated with clips from the classic TV box sets and films. Plus the screening of a surprise Nordic Noir film.

Film Heads

As dusk falls, three giant translucent heads will appear in the river bed. Looking like giant Easter Island Heads, each face will move, blink and come alive - magically animated by projections. The heads will speak, lip-synced to well-known moments from famous films. The heads will show your face. We will photograph your portrait on the night and add your photo to the mix of faces.
