REFRAME IRAN

2016

clap-icon Directed by João Inada

Reframe Iran is a virtual reality experience taking place in eight Iranian artist studios throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. With a Gear VR headset, the user will be up close and personal with internationally acclaimed artists such as Shirin Neshat and Parviz Tanavoli. The narration and music for this experience are both minimal, allowing the user to feel like they are dropping in on some of the artists’ most intimate moments– while they are working – or behind the scenes of a conversation with our team. While the user visually investigates these studios, a cohesive story emerges through narration and interviews about Iranian identity and the heavy burden these artists carry to represent Iran while living simultaneously in exile from their country.

CHILDREN OF THE WILD

Germany | 2016

clap-icon Production: ZDF – Terra X

In many cultures there are myths about “wolf children”, young children who have been taken from their families and then grown up in the wild, either alone or with wolves, bears or other animals as surrogate parents. But how close are ideas about such feral children to reality? The film studies well-documented stories of wild children, exploring plausible cases in India and Africa, while tracing the origins and development of Mowgli in Kipling’s famous Jungle Book. The 12 minute VR special will offer a combination of two stories: the story of the true monkey boy John Ssebunya in Uganda and the story of Mowgli, the most famous but fictitious wolf child.
