MUSEUM'S NORTHERN FAÇADE
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War's Armistice Day, Auckland War Memorial Museum presents a looped film projected onto the northern façade of the building.
The 15-minute film sequence will be screened on Friday 9, Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 from 8.30pm until 11pm. The film includes specially-created content using poignant images from the Museum's collection showing faces of those who served in the First World War, alongside a moving poppy motif. The presentation will also feature a short film created by WW100, explaining how the impacts of WWI ricocheted around the world and can still be felt today.
The screening will take place against the backdrop of over 18,000 white crosses installed into Auckland Domain by the Fields of Remembrance Trust.
This year's Illuminate will bring our annual WWI projection programme to a close.
