Made for Channel 4, In Your Face is a 17-part series of short films on the secret life of the contemporary British portrait. Each film is the story of an encounter told from the differing perspectives of artist and sitter (ranging from feminist Germaine Greer to actor John Hurt). Their separate takes on the finished portrait and its genesis reveal the personalities within the portrait and the unusual forces at play.
This clip from the series follows John Keane as he paints politician Mo Mowlam.
In Your Face was produced by Coluga Pictures in association with the National Portrait Gallery.
