“I will not be a virgin forever!” We follow Juana who is just discovering her own body. On her way through the non-barrier-free city she hears the occasional comment. Her answer: “Keep calm! It’s just a wheelchair!” But the obstacle to overcome is something else: nervousness before a blind date where Juana hopes to pop her cherry.

Dear future disaster survivor,

This is the story of how your city is completely devastated and your world perishes without you.

On 26 April, 2011, the city of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, was devastated by a tornado. The result: 4,700 homes damaged, 10,000 made homeless, thousands injured. This web documentary in letter form offers not only general information about natural disasters. Its simple images, delicately drawn charts and the director’s voice over also create a very personal and emotional access to the subject.

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.

Ayahuasca – Kosmik Journey Jan Kounen

Guided by the meditative chants of a virtual Shipibo healer we embark on an inner journey. Kaleidoscopic visions create a meditative state whose intensity is heavily dependent on our level of attention.

The destination of our journey is a world that seems to be pure geometry. Kaleidoscopic visions create a meditative state whose intensity is heavily dependent on our level of attention.

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.

Vaysha is not like other girls: she sees the past with her left eye, the future with her right eye. Caught in a blurred world between the two, the present is a blind spot for her. This 360° film combines traditional linocut with innovative animation techniques. The use of stereoscopic images enables us to see the world through Vaysha’s eyes.

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.

“Criers of Medellín” is a virtual tour of the city of Medellín. We find ourselves in an interactive Google Street View map where every player chooses their own path through the Colombian metropolis to collect the market criers’ stories. Surrounded by a web of chants and original urban sounds we listen closely to the singing street sellers’ fears, desires and realities of life. Spots you would pass as a tourist with an amused look become the places where you stop to find an exciting world revealed in personal video portraits.

A few kilometres underground our flashlights are the only source of light. About thirty years ago, at a place with seemingly impossible living conditions, scientists discovered a hidden ecosystem that fundamentally changed our understanding of life. Among its inhabitants is the “Mephisto worm”. To explore its dark world at eye level we become as small as the creature.

A streak of light floats in the water, controlled only by your breath. It’s like a brief vacation that takes place in one’s head, but this meditative journey can also be shared with others. In the virtual reality installation “Deep”, modern technology is combined with Yoga breathing techniques to create a new physical experience.

In the exhibition three players can simultaneously enter a virtual space, while the audience delve into an underwater world in Tim van Cromvoirt’s multimedia installation “Lungplants”.

This web documentary reveals what’s supposed to be hidden from the eyes of society. 1,030 people are “held in safe custody” in one of Russia’s biggest secure mental hospitals in Peterhof near St. Petersburg – locked away and isolated from the outside world. Interviews with employees and patients offer intimate insights into the lives of the “invisible people”, which follow a different rhythm. Time passes, flowing like the tracking shot through the seemingly endless corridors of the institute. The audience decide whether they walk past the rooms, look into them or “enter” at last to meet the residents.

A Texas oil field, the engine room of an ocean freighter, an anechoic room, a waste incineration plant – contrasting sceneries that are connected by the protagonists of this 360° collage film. They lead lonely lives, far removed from our own lifestyle. The quiet of the free field chamber clashes with the roaring of the engine room, but ultimately it’s all one.
