For one night only, the UK’s first ever interactive feature film was broadcast live online and at cinemas around Europe. Bloodyminded, took audiences on a moving and disturbing interactive journey that asked participants to make our own decisions about the morality of war.
We follow SJ as she breaks into an army base to bury the ashes of her great-grandfather, a conscientious objector during World War One. Inside, surrounded by soldiers and the ghosts of past wars, she finds a place where her certainty begins to falter.
Part of 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, Bloodyminded is the UK’s first interactive live streamed feature film, shot in a single take and broadcast to cinemas and online – once and once only. Guided by the narrator, we are asked to consider our own relationship with violence – as individuals and as members of a society that continues to wage wars on our behalf. And as the story unfolds, we are invited to add our thoughts via the Bloodyminded app.
