Bloodyminded Q&A

Join us to go behind the scenes of Bloodyminded – Europe’s first interactive and live feature film – and to see the work in full.

Following the live streamed, world premiere screening of Bloodyminded earlier this Autumn, see the full film followed by a Q&A with Director, Matt Adams, and University of Brighton’s Head of the School of Media Helen Kennedy (co-author of ‘Live Cinema: Cultures, Economies, Aesthetics’) and others to be announced.

Part of 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary and co-commissioned by Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts, Bloodyminded broke new ground in artistic and technical ambition. The film was recorded in one take over 90 minutes, and streamed live to over 126,000 people online and in cinemas. Audiences also interacted in real time, sending their responses to the narrator that became part of the film.

Bloodyminded follows SJ, played by Isis Davis [Electric Dreams, Lie Low] as she breaks into an army base on a personal mission: to bury the ashes of her great-grandfather Harold Steele, one of the 16,000 conscientious objectors imprisoned under life-threatening conditions during World War One.

The film was inspired by the conscientious objectors of World War One, and drew on in-depth research and one to one interviews with soldiers with front line experience; followed by months of preparation, recces, casting and rehearsals.

This event and film screening will offer a rare insight into the technical processes and challenges involved in making a live film, with exclusive go-pro footage filmed during the recording.
