Make your personal selection from all available VR films, including Buried in the Rock by Shehani Fernando, Matthew Shaw and William Trossell; Close by Hana Umeda; Dance Permit (Denied) by Claudix Vanesix; Emperor by Marion Burger and Ilan Cohen; Floating with Spirits by Juanita Onzaga; Fresh Memories: The Look by Volodymyr Kolbasa and Omdrej Moravec; Going Back Home: Mother VR by Catalina Alarcón; Lateral by Charlie Shackleton; Natalie’s Trifecta by Natalie Paneng; and Texada by Josephine Anderson and Claire Sanford. 

A ticket for the DocLab: VR Gallery allows you to watch projects of your choice during a 50-minute time slot, so you can see a rich variety of VR projects. The VR Gallery is located in Arti et Amicitiae at Rokin 112 in Amsterdam’s city center, close to Spui. If you want to watch all the VR films on offer, you will need four timeslots (and therefore four tickets).

This location is unfortunately not accessible for wheelchairs. Do you have reduced mobility? Please send an e-mail to service@idfa.nl and our staff will reserve a spot for you in the accessible VR Booth at De Brakke Grond, where you can see the full VR Gallery selection.

Composition
Buried in the Rock

Buried in the Rock

Descend into a cave with speleologists Pam and Tim Fogg. As the darkness surrounds you like a velvet blanket, they talk about unusual rocks, the dangers of their profession and the thrill of total seclusion.
Close

Close

Juitamai dance expresses the unheard stories of Japanese women without words. It is both liberating and regulated, an accusation and at the same time a game of seduction. This VR experience pushes these contradictions to the extreme—and beyond.
Dance Permit (Denied)

Dance Permit (Denied)

Certain traditional dances in Peru are performed only by men. In this 360 VR performance, female-born, non-binary trans person Claudix Vanesix connects this dance with their birthplace, religion and a critique of the patriarchy.
Emperor

Emperor

Monochrome animations inspired by pencil drawings put you inside the brain of a person with aphasia. In this interactive VR, you experience the role of a father who has lost his speech, and the story of his daughter who is trying to communicate with him.

Floating with Spirits

Floating with Spirits

In this cinematic virtual reality experience set in Mexico, two young Mazatecs tell stories passed down by their grandmother, who was a shaman. Their imaginations bring to life their ancestral world, where natural spirits share their knowledge.
Fresh Memories: The Look

Fresh Memories: The Look

Inspired by Marina Abramović’s performance “The Artist Is Present,” this VR experience places you face-to-face with residents of the devastated Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, as they stare at you in silence, amid the ruins of their homes or workplaces.
Going Back Home: Mother VR

Going Back Home: Mother VR

Chilean women in prison have limited contact with their family and children. This VR experience shows how a handful of women behind bars get a brief opportunity to stand beside their children in virtual reality.
Natalie’s Trifecta

Natalie’s Trifecta

In this VR experience, South African multi-disciplinary artist Natalie Paneng invites you into the three worlds that make up her artistic practice: a virtual gallery, her studio and the playful dream world that fuels her work.

Texada

Texada

“How big is time?” In and around the quarries on the Canadian island of Texada, this virtual reality documentary juxtaposes two dimensions of time: the human and the geological.
IDFA DocLab: Phenomenal Friction
With this year's theme Phenomenal Friction, DocLab explores friction in all its forms. The exhibition program invites audiences to look beyond technological efficiency and convenience, to explore the resistance that can propel creativity forward and the conflict that reveals life's complexities.
