Tribeca’s Immersive Lineup Revealed
The main category is Evolver, a new project from Marshmallow Laser Feast which also features music from Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood. It takes viewers on an immersive tour of the body, following the flow of oxygen through the blood and exploring its connection to the world around us. It includes Meredith Monk, Jóhann Jóhannsson and Howard Skempton.
A Fisherman’s Tale developer Innerspace also lends its skills to Kubo Walks The City, a look at Korea under Japanese occupation in 1934. Directed by Hayoun Kwon, the work explores life in that era.
Also premiering are the next three episodes of Missing Pictures, a series that brings unmade films to life with production from Atlas V. Nonny de la Peña, meanwhile, returns for another immersive study following a woman diagnosed with Lyme disease in Please, Believe Me.
In the New Voices category, you can expect new experiences like the LGBTQ+ VR Museum, which features 3D scans of goods from the LGBTQ community that, in turn, reveal parts of their stories. Mecasform Hill: The Missing Five, meanwhile, is an animated graphic novel that follows the disappearance of several police officers in an African town.
Tribeca will also offer AR projects and audio experiences in addition to even more VR highlights. The festival runs from June 8-19 and will also include flat screen games, traditional films and more.
