Screening: This is My Face

People living with HIV in Chile fear stigma. They conceal their condition and stay silent about their experiences of an illness that threatens their life. Using autobiographical photography and cinematic storytelling, This Is My Face challenges this taboo, revealing a hidden dialogue that evokes the reality of the people dealing with an illness that radically changes lives. Join Director Angélica Cabezas Pino on this journey, unfolding years of silence and misrepresentation. An exhibition of photographs will accompany the screening.

  • Directed by: Guillermo del Toro
  • Cast: Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones, Lauren Lee Smith, Michael Stuhlbarg, Octavia Spencer

In 1962 Baltimore, Eliza (Hawkins) is a mute who works as a cleaner in a secret government facility alongside the chatty Zelda (Spencer); there she makes a connection with a mysterious monster (Jones). A wondrous tale of underwater love, with an apt and refreshing approach to female sexuality; from screenplay through casting, score and production, it all gels superbly.

With a 216 seat auditorium, a 100 seat studio theatre and full cinematic, theatrical and conference facilities, the Byre Theatre is a strong cultural hub in North East Fife.

Originally founded in 1933, the building has seen many changes over the years, and in 2013 it went into administration and ceased hosting performances.

In 2014, The University of St Andrews announced that the theatre was to reopen under the management of the University, with the building to be used as a theatre, educational resource, general arts venue and music centre.
