10 Oct 2007

17-28 October on BBC Big Screen, Exchange Square

Nowgen, a centre for genetics in healthcare, is running a project entitled 'Faces of Manchester' to stimulate interest and discussion about the genetic, social and cultural aspects of the human face. One part of this project is a film which celebrates Manchester life and the diversity of its people. Hundreds of Manchester's people were photographed and morphed together in sequence to make this captivating short film, which will be screened by the BBC Big Screen, Manchester Arndale Centre, The Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, and at The Nowgen Centre throughout Manchester Science Festival.
