BARRY GENE MURPHY & MAY ABDALLA | GOLIATH: PLAYING WITH REALITY
Virtual Reality Experience
The 21st edition of Arenas Movedizas, in synergy with L.E.V. Festival and with the collaboration of the European project Realities in Transition, presents Goliath: Playing With Reality, an animated virtual reality experience about schizophrenia, gaming and connection.
Created by Anagram in co-production with Floréal Films, directed by Barry Gene Murphy and May Abdalla, and winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best VR Work at the 78th Venice International Film Festival, this project explores the limits of reality sharing a true story of mental health and the power of gaming through mind-bending animation.
Echo, narrated by Tilda Swinton, guides us through the many realities of Goliath, a man who has spent years in isolating mental health institutions but finds connection in multiplayer games. Combining heart-felt dialogue, mesmerizing visuals and symbolic interactions, it invites us to weave through multiple worlds to uncover Goliath’s poignant story.
