The works in the catalog:

Vulcano – directed by Omar Rashid
Volcano is a VR film showing the eruption of the Icelandic volcano on Mount Fagradalsfjall after 800 years of inactivity. This 360-degree immersive journey, among boundless landscapes and rivers of glowing lava, reconstructs the volcanic eruption event in all its spectacularity. Virtual reality transports the viewer to an unexplored place, eventually leading him to the foot of the volcano. Images of the volcano, awakened from an 8-century-long sleep, dust off the ancestral human-earth bond and trigger in the viewer a long-forgotten primal instinct.
Happy Birthday – directed by Lorenzo Giovenga
Sara’s is no ordinary birthday. Hers seems like a perfect evening, in a mansion all to herself, with jugglers, skaters, magicians and her favorite band. But something doesn’t feel right for her. And just as the cake enters the room, the party reveals its true nature.


Revenge Room –directed by Diego Botta
Federica has locked herself in her bedroom and won’t come out. Dozens of provocative and vulgar messages from strangers arrive on her smartphone. Her boyfriend, Davide, wakes up in a room with a stranger, Saul, and does not understand what is happening.


Om Devi – directed by Claudio Casale
A journey through today’s India, through the eyes of three women who, in different ways, live the claims of gender rights on their own skin.
Anjali, Shabnam and Devya Arya carry on their daily battles, combining social idealism with the spirituality in which they were raised, in a harmonious synthesis of activism and tradition.
The spirit of the Devi, the goddess symbolic of feminine energy so celebrated in Indian culture, intrudes symbolically into their stories, accompanies them on their journey of emancipation and self-discovery, and like an invisible thread brings them closer together, in a country of boundless grandeur.


Michael’s Mask – directed by Guido Geminiani
The user is in the role of an actor working on the set of a virtual reality film in Venice. He is in crisis with his identity, so his actor coach Michael Margotta is called to the set to help him. Michael begins to work with the actor through very sophisticated techniques. The actor’s current perception begins to be confused and mixed with different realities.

It is winter 1944 and the slow and difficult advance of the Allied forces into central Italy is underway. On a night illuminated only by the moon, a small squad of Italian soldiers has joined-after the 1943 armistice-the Anglo-American troops.
