PEDRO HARRES | FROM THE MAIN SQUARE
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 From The Main Square, an animated, interactive virtual reality experience by Berlin-based Brazilian director Pedro Harres and created with an international team from 14 nations.
From The Main Square is a compact portrait of social disruption. Encircling a central square, a new town emerges in all its diversity. A crossroad of stories, buildings, hopes, and conflicts. Social ties and cultures take root, but also animosity towards those who are different. It doesn’t take long for an “us versus them” atmosphere to take over. The viewer is invited to witness the rise and fall of a divided society. A civilization blossoms, with all its contradictions, only to become a danger to itself.
The experience is a production of Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf and has been funded by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg. It is also the only German production to ever enter the Venice Immersive competition at the renowned Venice International Film Festival, where it was awarded with the Grand Jury Prize.
