Culture VR - Recoding Entropia

Recoding Entropia


Following I Saw the Future, in which he meant to decrypt writer Arthur C. Clarke’s predictions inside an artificial field, and Odyssey 1.4.9, a tribute to Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece 2001, A Space Odyssey, Recording Entropia is the latest opus part of François Vautier’s VR anthology about evolution.

Extending his experimenting cycle, the French director – passionate about science-fiction – now intends to offer a full and unusual immersion inside an environment expected to be infinite and vertiginous. Playing with materials, their interactions as well as scale relationships, he brings us at the heart of twilight poetry in a captivating tale. The movie is an invitation to travel. It is a sensitive visual journey, both physical and cerebral. A reflection on the imaginary and the future of humankind.

Beyond the immersive techniques and the directing devices, everything is made so that the spectator may live an incredible journey during which he will be able to question in an introspective way his intimate connection to time and space, and his place in the universe, both real and fantasized.
