26th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival

ji-hlavadok-revuecdfEmerging producersInspiration Forum

Virtual Reality

The Ji.hlava IDFF gives viewers the chance to enter into the selection of 360° documentary films and works on the boundary between film and art that make use of virtual spaces to create autonomous worlds whose own rules are determined by visuality. We are interested in works that take advantage of the characteristics of virtuality in an innovative and contemplative manner, that experiment with the audiovisual representation of reality and real stories, or that build an entertaining and instructive world of knowledge and learning.

VR ZONE can be found on the Masaryk Square in Jihlava.

ENTRY: 60 CZK accredited guests / 120 CZK without accreditation

Ferenj: A Graphic Memoir in Virtual Reality
The portrait of the home is not only a reflection on the harmony of Ethiopian and American culture, but also on the construction of identities based on fragments of cultural and oral history and examples of stereotypical narratives that might arise from historical retellings.

Hominidae
This story of beings with the physiology of both human and spider plays out in a duel with a predator where the lives of their offspring are at stake. But above all, this is an opportunity to witness and explore the visual composition of anatomy through whole-body X-ray images.

ONCE UPON A SEA
The interactive installation is a riveting testimony to the ecological and geopolitical crisis, which it illustrates through the story of the Dead Sea. Centuries of human and political intervention have set up a shaky future for one of the greatest natural wonders on Earth. The consequences of human actions are mirrored in crumbling banks, sinking soil, dramatically falling water levels.

REEDUCATED
An investigation into a Chinese “re-education” camp in Xinjiang Province. The memories of three men interned here after their arrest present the eradication of ethnic and religious minorities, the largest since the horrors of the Holocaust.

Schrödinger’s cat is lost in a VR box
The consistent work from the founders of the kinema ikon art collective, who have been creating major works of Romanian experimental cinema since the 1970s, has also led to the creation of a virtual installation for several films, offering an overview of bold and stylistically innovative cinematic works that were sidelined by the official, totalitarian state-owned cinema.

The Book of Distance
An emotional journey through the history of one family's migration that began in 1935 with Yonez Okita's journey from Japan to Canada, where a few years later war and rampant racism made him the enemy. Three generations later, Randall Okita sets about reconstructing what has been lost, sorting through memories and moments both dark and hopeful, and guiding the viewer through the installation's personal journey of loss and healing.

VIRTUAL CUDDLE THERAPY
The installation, with its elaborate scenic elements, creates an opportunity for viewers to stop and take a step back from their daily routine. Using virtual vision, participants focus on their own breathing, slowing themselves down. Gentle attention to one's body is essential to the ability to remain in the present and experience one's own immediate sensations.
