Every day at 14:00 - Summation of Force | Blind Vaysha | Potato Dreams

BLIND VAYSHA


Vaysha is not like other little girls: she was born with a left eye that sees only the past and a right eye that sees only the future, and she cannot live in the present. Should she poke out one of her eyes so that she can live in the other’s temporal reality? Or is she doomed to perceive the world from this perplexing perspective?

BLIND VAYSHA is an expressionistic work that employs VR to create a more visceral connection between the viewer and the heroine. It uses this immersive technology to serve the purposes of the narrative, not visual spectacle, and to make the central metaphor of the story, which is steeped in Buddhist wisdom, that much more compelling.

SUMMATION OF FORCE


In a moonlit suburban backyard, two brothers battle one another in an otherworldly game of cricket in this stunning black and white live-action study of the motion, physics, and psychology of sport. Created by photographers Trent Parke and Narelle Autio, in collaboration with filmmaker Matthew Bate, this Lynchian VR experience offers a darkly beautiful and dreamlike metaphor for life

POTATO DREAMS


Wes Hurley's surreal autobiographical VR doc utilises pop culture to tell the story of Little Potato's journey, growing up gay in the Soviet Union before and after the fall of communism.
