Cinema 3 (Beech St)
Manu Luksch’s sci-fi film uses images from CCTV video-surveillance systems in London, obtained by Freedom of Information requests. In this daring work, she moulds a familiar London into an eerie and oppressive place, where everyone is faceless. One morning, a woman finds she has a face and journeys to rediscover its lost power and history.
