Ceremony saw Turner Prize-nominated artist Phil Collins return Engels to the city where he made his name – in the form of a Soviet-era statue, driven across Europe and permanently installed outside HOME in the centre of Manchester. Performers, musicians and the people of Manchester created a live film to bring MIF17 to a close, mixing footage from the statue’s journey with live coverage of its inauguration.
