REAWAKENING OF MEMORIES


A coroner has serious doubts as to whether a young woman’s death was indeed a suicide. He uses cutting-edge technology to extract memories from the corpse's brain, putting his own life and sanity at stake. What he plunges into, is a dark voyeuristic fantasy fuelled by desire.

MICRO GIANTS


This spectacular photorealistic animation lets audiences experience the ecosystem from the unique 'micro world' perspective of insects. Tiny flowers are mighty trees, aphids are beasts, blades of grass become forests, rocks are mountains, and water drops are as big as swimming pools. It is in this magnificently surreal — yet based in reality — world that a brutal and mesmerizing story of survival plays out.

THE OTHER DAKAR


Imagine a Senegalese SPIRITED AWAY in VR and you'll get a sense of what THE OTHER DAKAR is like. A little girl receives a message and discovers the hidden face of Dakar. An homage to Senegalese mythology and a stunning visual debut from Dakar-based artist and designer Selly Raby Kane, this magical 360° film transports viewers to a place where past and future meet and where artists are the beating heart of the city.
