Sacrifice – Musée de la Romanité

Le Sacrifice©Musée de la Romanité


This film is part of the temporary exhibition entitled, The Roman Emperor, a mortal among gods, at the Musée de la Romanité.
The 4-minute 2D animated film transports visitors into a visual soundscape portraying the ritual of sacrifice in Roman religion. The animated film is screened to scale by 3 video projectors and a system of amplifiers and speakers set in a U-shaped viewing area in a square space, putting the spectators centre stage.
Our team used an array of iconographies from the period to recreate this aspect of Roman worship.
