RAINDANCE GALLERY OF IMMERSIVE STORIES PRESENTED BY BOSE

For the fourth year, Raindance Film Festival continues to champion the creators who push the artistic boundaries in the mediums of Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality. Join us at the Raindance Gallery of Immersive Stories and experience two powerful spiritual and other-wordly experiences, meticulously crafted for VR.


AYAHUASCA

Jan Kounen | France/Luxembourg | 18 mins | UK premiere
Award nominations: Best Documentary Experience, Artistic Achievement

Experience the magic and healing power of Ayahuasca. This immersive experience is a voyage through one of the most mysterious spiritual practices on the planet: Ayahuasca, the vine of the soul, allowing you to find your inner space.

Ayahuasca gives a unique chance for a wide audience to approach a cultural and spiritual mystery. The participant is immersed in the visions triggered by this revered substance. Thanks to the piece’s extraordinary interactive processes, the viewer will experience the ceremony in a very actual way. The shaman will advise to maintain a neutral position to better receive the visions, while the motion sensors placed in the headsets, will allow the application to track the user’s movements and react accordingly. The visions will either shut up or light up, depending on the user’s posture. The agitation steers one away from visions, while calm and contemplation exhale the journey. The viewer will go through darkness and wonder until the final climax and denouement.


HEART OF DARKNESS

Stuart 'Sutu' Campbell | Australia | 13 mins | World premiere
Award nominations: Best Animated Experience, Artistic Achievement

Inspired by Joseph Conrad’s novel, this sci-fi experience is set on the dwarf planet Ceres, where Astro-biologist Captain Kurtz has gone missing. Your mission is to find him. As you journey deep into the Ceres cave network you will learn the story of his disappearance via the onboard Artificial Intelligence, Teeva. The experience was crafted in Tiltbrush.
