Made up of filmmakers, photographers and students from the USA and UK, this accomplished group of between 20 and 50 will tour 14 venues across Great Britain.

"This is a terrifically talented group of people - some longtime and some new friends of the project. Their diverse backgrounds and depth of experience work in a cohesive fashion to bring together dynamic still portraits and documentary works."

"The Face of Freedom" is an incredibly unique project," said David Gibbons. "Our goal is to energize people's curiosity about people and the world around us. Still portraits and documentary are uniquely suited to reach out to audiences in an informative way in achieving this goal. The project's journey in August will create unity and inspiration to those who participate as we cross the country exploring cultural diversity. It will produce a historical record the like of which has not been seen before and follows on from the successful 14 Days in America in 2004."

Building on its reputation for bringing together people's compelling stories and discovery of a common thread evident through the creative work's, the project will offer one of the most inspiring and groundbreaking projects ever seen in the UK.
