Thousands attend a screening in Trafalgar Square after Director boycotts Oscars!
Lily Cole, Damon Albarn and Mariella Frostrup join Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and thousands of activists supporting Iranian director boycotting the Oscars over Trump’s travel ban.
Lightmedia built the biggest screen Trafalgar Square has ever seen for the Oscar Award Winning Film “The Salesman” by Iranian Film Director Asghar Farhadi.
LMD provided and installed the enormous 83sqm Modular LED screen with production facilities for the play out along with live cameras and VT.
This was a very challenging build due to an earlier event not finishing until late Saturday night. We started the build at 2am and finished at 6am ready for testing.
The event was a fantastic success with higher than anticipated crowds.
