Music, colour, love. A virtual reality experience to explore the possibilities of film.
16:30- Talk: Flavio Costa〔Director〕
|Cast||Camilla Diana, Christian Burruano|
Sofia lives in a black and white world, a rare disease has rendered her incapable of perceiving the beauty of the colors. She passes her days reading books of poetry and visiting museums until one day her monochrome quiet is broken by the arrival of a new neighbour: Vincent, a pianist who with his music brings back her ability to see colors. The wonder of this journey of discovery is turned into a fusion of two souls in an eternal dance.
Selected and produced out of the projects that gathered from various countries for the Biennale College Cinema - VR that started in 2017. This film has been presented at the Out of Competition of Venice Biennale, the world's oldest film festival and first to initiate a virtual reality competition in order to explore the possibilities of virtual reality in film, as a method of expression different to that of games. Take this opportunity to experience how a story unfolds in an environment where visuals move 360º with the movement of your head.
