This year, Cannes is getting more immersive contents than ever. In the Palais, the Marché du Film is opening a new space intitled Cannes XR (news), and on the other side of the Croisette the Directors’ Fortnight will showcased 3 VR projects by Laurie Anderson & Hsin-Chien Huang.
Aloft, Chalkroom and To the Moon, three poetically linked and complementary pieces presented together for the first time, give viewers a comprehensive overview of their research in these new narrative territories.
The sensory, poetic and technological dimensions of these three pieces are tightly intertwined and offer new forms of storytelling by amplifying our cinematic experience. It is this singular and fully authorial, approach of virtual reality, that the Directors’ Fortnight wishes to highlight, honour and share.Link
