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.
