(Re)Framing the Face (Film)

12 November, 2020, 1:00 pm - 22 November, 2020, 11:30 pm

This is an online event.

This short film explores the connections between hands, faces, and facial surgery. Inspired by the descriptions process of facial surgery described by a maxillofacial surgeon, artist Clare Whistler has produced a performance interpreting the dextrous movements and actions involved in a face transplant operation. This short film invites you to explore your own emotional responses to the physical and psychological processes of surgery, and the physical skills involved in a highly complex form of surgical innovation.

This event contains no graphic images so is suitable for all ages, but is aimed at audiences of 18 and above.

Watch the film

The video is also freely available on the ‘AboutFace’ website throughout the festival.

This event is part of the ‘AboutFace’ series led by the University of York.
