‘Welcome to The Other Side’ VR
A VR experience by Ana Brzezińska
A unique trip to the only moment in human life when we are all put in a situation of no return. This is the first high-end immersive experience in which you live, and survive, your own death. The user experiences his sudden death in the first stage of the project. Whilst ‘virtually dying’ the user participates in a dazzling, metaphysical journey during which he faces his dreams and fears concerning life.
After 8 minutes (in medicine this is the time when you can still save a patient) the user ‘comes back to life’ - to the beginning of the experience. The reward after the trip is a renewed hope and joy of living. Welcome to the Other Side!
The project has been developed, and pitched at East Doc in Prague, id/w in Nyon, Cross Video Days in Paris, Venice VR Gap Financing Market, Lepzig Networking Days and Hot Docs Forum in Toronto. It was awarded Best Pitch in Prague, and Nyon (under the title ‘The Future of Forever’).
‘Welcome to The Other Side’
A creative documentary by Ana Brzezińska
‘Welcome to the Other Side’ is a story about getting back to life after a major loss. The film director goes on a journey to find out if she can regain peace, and a sense of purpose after losing her father. On her way she meets people who, just like her, cannot accept how death takes away from us everything we love.
