Behind Dissent – The Green Screen Experience

Sneak a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the making of our latest temporary exhibition, Dissent – the story of how the war affected conscientious objectors, politicians, Māori and religious groups who dared to speak out. See how Story Inc & Dusk used  a green screen, silhouettes, and Brechtian influences to bring the voices of conscientious objectors, Māori pacifists, and anti-war activists to life, creating a powerful, emotionally confronting audio-visual experience.

A ten-minute audio-visual show produced by Story Inc. and funded by the Lottery Grants Board, Dissent gives The Great War Exhibition a chance to tell the stories of a different type of courage. The courage to oppose the war.

Dissent is the latest in Chapters of the Great War, a series of temporary exhibitions featuring lesser-known stories of the First World War, and runs until late September.  Our next temporary exhibition, Passchendaele, opens on 4th October 2017.
