Special Screenings

Limbotopia - Wen-E HSIEH (TW)

LIMBOTOPIA presents an immersive world where time stands still, amidst a blend of utopia and dystopia. Following an environmental crisis, participants journey through monochromatic eternity in Taiwan. Premiering at Tribeca, Hsieh Wen-Yee's work redefines gravity and perspective, blending hypnotic imagery with electronic soundscapes, creating a spellbinding experience.

Matière Première -Yan Breuleux (CA)

Imagine Matière Première as an abstract painting you dive into, exploring the levels of artistic gesture down to the atoms of pigments. In this dome, you are explorers immersed in visual and auditory layers, seeking precious materials, navigating through an infinite virtual space. This experience is an immersive poem, a space for projection.

Local Dystopias In The Global Utopia - Sergey Prokofyev (DE)

In a vast desert, a unique cinematic experience unfolds across dome screens, each showcasing distinct architectural tales. Journey through three dystopian worlds: "High Rise Cult," a village with wooden skyscraper replicas buoyed by balloons; "The Doomed City," born in no man’s land; and "The Phygital Limbo," a digital urban maze blurring reality. This immersive film challenges perceptions, blending architectural imagination with reality.
