This Week at FACT
Q&A with director Michael Whyte, Liverpool Light Night and New Tools for Young People
10 May 2010This Tuesday we welcome director Michael Whyte to FACT to discuss his recently released film No Greater Love. Whyte will be taking part in a Q&A following a screening of the film, which captures the rituals of daily life inside a Caremelite monastery in the heart of London's Notting Hill - from routine prayers to the production of communion wafers and hassocks, and even the weekly food shop on the internet.
Tuesday also sees a Silver Screen showing of La Danse, a visually alluring and masterfully poetic documentary of the Paris Opera Ballet.
On Friday FACT is taking part in Liverpool's Light Night. Liverpool-based 3D effects studio SparkleVFX will be in the building providing an insight into 3D and CGI technology and in Gallery 1 we'll be hosting a Disco Dance marathon with acclaimed Liverpool-based dancer Darren Suarez.
Finally, young people between 14 and 17 years old can join is in the Media Lounge on Saturday when we'll be creating comics in response to the audio war stories collected during the MyWar exhibition. Pre-booking is essential.
