The Real Thing
The Real Thing is a VR journey into a copy of our world. Around China's largest cities, entire neighbourhoods have been inspired by foreig models. The film explores the most stunning of these "fake cities". It travels from Paris to London and Venice - without leaving China. The inhabitants guide us in the parallel world where they have chosen to live. As VR leads the way to virtual tourism, copycat cities compete to offer a real experience of static travel. Walking the thin line between reality and virtuality, this documentary combines both to enhance a whole new feeling and ubiquity.
VR films can be viewed at Trafóklub between November 12 and 17 from 2 pm to 8 pm. Further info about admission and tickets can be found here.
