L.E.V. Festival activities in collaboration with Gijón’s Town Council Youth Department: virtual and augmented reality experiences in Arenas Movedizas and conversation with dj and producer Jana Rush
Promoted by Gijón’s Town Council Youth Department and curated by the collective FIUM, the project of experiments around audiovisual culture Arenas Movedizas celebrates its 20th Anniversary edition from April 28 to May 1 at Escuela de Comercio, and will work, once again, in synergy with L.E.V. Festival to present three activities of virtual and augmented reality.
Espacio Joven at Escuela de Comercio will host the shocking virtual reality documentary On the Morning You Wake (To the End of the World), created by the multi award winning studios Archer’s Mark and Atlas V. This film, of extreme relevance in the current sociopolitical context, immerses the audience in the terrible event that took place in January 2018 in Hawaii, when its citizens received an SMS alert from the Emergency Management Agency, informing of the imminent attack of a ballistic missile in the country. Based on the audio testimony of those who witnessed the events firsthand, this VR experience shows the fundamental injustice of a world held hostage to the threat of nuclear weapons, and stands for peace and urgent nuclear disarmament and abolition as the only way to change the story.
