VR PACKAGE 1

(MIFF 2017, Virtual Reality)

Marc Zimmermann’s Longing for Wilderness takes you from the noisy city through the slowly transforming forest to a wild and airy landscape.

Alexandre Perez’s Sergeant James recaptures the innocence of youth, the wonder of the unknown, the folly of fear and the terrifying possibility that things are far creepier than they seem.

Ricardo Laganaro’s Step to the Line aims to provoke a new way of thinking about prisoners, and the prison system.

The world of Khoa Do and Pieris Mussared’s future-set The Extraction rounds out this package, world premiering at MIFF in 2017.

VR package durations include approximately 30 minutes of VR experiences, plus introductions and filmmaker Q&As where available.
