Avant Première Talk ‘A JERUSALEM EXPERIENCE - TELLING FICTIONAL STORIES IN VR’
PRESENTED BY MEDEA FILM FACTORY
With a team consisting of both Israelis and Palestinians, Dani Levy directed four short films in Jerusalem. The episodes "FAITH","LOVE","HOPE" and "FEAR" illuminate life at a focal point of the Middle East conflict from an Israeli and Palestinian perspective. Dani Levy uses the VR - 360 degree technology for the first time, which enables the viewer to get to know the city of Jerusalem in a completely new way through omni-sensory and sensual experiences. He will talk about the experiences and challenges of telling fictional stories in VR.
This Avant Première Talk is held in the course of the Programme Focus "Innovation Day".
