Set in World War I Canada, Trina Davies’ SHATTER tells the story of the Halifax Explosion of 1917, which destroyed large parts of Halifax and killed more than 2,000 people. Projection was used to display newspaper headlines and animate transitions with shadowy, haunting depictions of Halifax after the explosion.
