Slave to Mortal Rage makes its Canadian premiere at IFOA! It is the third virtual reality installation by CiRCA69, a company described by Cineuropa Magazine as “one of the most notable names in Europe to be dealing with VR”. You can walk around and explore the world around you, interact with it, feel the wind upon your face and uncover a story in which you are the central character.
You find yourself on the mezzanine of a luxury apartment in a high rise block overlooking the city; you are in the middle of a story or a poem which needs further investigation to be understood. The city is disintegrating, the news reader is weeping and on a desk in front of you a copy of Palgrave’s Golden Treasury is open to the page Time and Love.
