We plunge into an impressive world of sound and colour. The shamans of the Yuruparí tribe live in the Amazonas rainforest in south-west Colombia. Their sacred sites are distributed over a network that precisely follows the line of the equator. The Yuruparí believe that they live at the centre of the world and that it’s their duty to keep the earth in spiritual balance.

100 years after the shooting of the silent film “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” ended, the story of the old showman and the somnambulist Cesare is reanimated as a volumetric video by 3D human body reconstruction technology. In this walk-in film, the perspective determines one’s view of the expressionist and dreamlike scenery.

BIOSCOPE Maarten Isaäk de Heer

A gang of garden gnomes is terrorising the city. A ladybug as a basketball. A girl skipping rope on top of an earthworm. A bird being beaten up. What we see is an analogue animation.

A gang of garden gnomes is terrorising the city. A ladybug as a basketball. A girl skipping rope on top of an earthworm. A bird being beaten up. The riot of detail in this two by four metre work of art recalls paintings by Pieter Bruegel the Elder or Hieronymus Bosch, but it’s more than a painting. What we see is an analogue animation, grotesque scenery animated by the spectators’ movements and their interaction with the picture – completely without electricity. The technology – lenticular printing – is known from flip images and 3D postcards.

Visually inspired by “Candy Crush”, one of the most popular games of our time, we find ourselves in a pink world filled with candy-sweet creatures. They confront us with real comments from image boards like “4chan” and “8chan”, where, under cover of irony and anonymity, the boundaries between trolling and social radicalisation are becoming increasingly blurred.

We are thrown into a massacre in the village of Mutarule. Shot and delirious, we are trying to find a safe place … In addition to this browser game, a room scale VR experience lets us undergo even more intensely the reality lived by the victims of the Congo war. An additional comprehensive online archive, consisting of the complete filmed material for “The Congo Tribunal”, enables us to browse and edit the footage individually.

It’s scary what the Internet knows about us – and how this knowledge is used. Ever since Edward Snowden we’ve known about the consequences of the obsessive data collecting of seemingly harmless online providers in the name of national security. But how exactly is a “like” click connected to our personal freedom? This documentary web series examines this and many other questions, while the user decides whether his or her data should be tracked simultaneously to produce an individual evaluation of Internet use. An interactive lesson in online security.

We live in times of upheaval. More and more technical innovations are part of our everyday life. But how dependent do we want to be? Or are we already addicted? Will there be a time when we have nothing but digital friendships, sex with robots, when we hack our own bodies? The transmedia project “HOMO DIGITALIS” consists of a documentary web series and a self testing game. How does the digital revolution affect us human beings? Does it turn Homo sapiens into a new species – Homo digitalis?

Only four survived. The other 127 were dead when the Germans hastily buried their bodies. Antonio Ceseri, one of the four, could hardly breathe under the sand. Sebaldushof near Treuenbrietzen was one of 40,000 labour camps in Nazi Germany. “The Sandmine” is a journey deep into a forgotten part of German-Italian history. In six chapters and 24 episodes the web documentary employs a distinct mixture of animation and documentation to uncover war crimes that seemed long buried under the sand.

You’re alone on an island full of people but nobody sees you. You can listen to them, watch them unabashedly, but not interact with them. They stand in space like artefacts. One of these holograms looks like you. How do you still justify your existence when nobody perceives you?

This is about the ambivalence of being alone in a group, about exploring the other and the familiar. The visitors to the exhibition are scanned as holograms, interviewed and can then explore the island themselves.

The main synagogue of Aleppo in Syria was heavily damaged in the civil war. This is the visualisation, detached from space and time, of the history of a place that no longer exists. It’s like stepping into an old black and white film where several strands of time converge. Encounters are suddenly possible: with characters who are still alive or who died decades, centuries ago.

Who are we? Where do we come from? “Reimagining Belonging” is a complex multimedia project which presents the different lives and routines of people with an immigrant background in New York and Berlin. Timed just right for the current debates, we also learn how global migration movements have changed and keep changing society in America and Europe.

The project was part of the first DOK Leipzig Net Lab in 2012 and is regularly supplemented with new interviews.

The heart beats faster, the pulse races, sweat pours. Chewing gum is the only thing that calms you down. How does it feel when everyday errands and situations become life-threatening hazards? We follow the protagonist Oscar who fights agoraphobia every day. It’s the fear of losing control that ties Oscar to his home. The 360° documentary creates a filmic space around Oscar that takes us right to the core of his being.

Are humans about to make themselves redundant? Or are we evolving into digital hybrids? The transition to trans-humanism is addressed via five recurring narrative islands about existence, corporeality, identity, transformation and consciousness. A living film which, thanks to machine learning code, narrates itself with an infinite number of changes.

“When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning from unsettling dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin.” This VR experience, based on Franz Kafka’s short novel “The Metamorphosis,” opens a metaphorical space that’s otherwise only accessible through our imagination. This is where you can experience physically how it feels to be Kafka’s bug.

The headset works as a time machine that puts us in the role of a prisoner in the Stasi prison of Berlin-Hohenschönhausen. Based on the memories of GDR writer Jürgen Fuchs and numerous interviews with contemporary witnesses, this 360° film doesn’t just depict recent German history but, for a brief moment, makes it present.
