Experience Virtual Reality

[Teenagers & adults]

France has earned international recognition in the virtual reality sector. The CNC's unique system of financial support for the creation of digital experiences, introduced in 2007, has enabled the production of many major productions, regularly presented and awarded at festivals around the world, and the emergence of new artists.

Divided into three themes - Fiction, Documentary, and Arts and Heritage - the artworks, with their diversity of subject and form, present a rich and varied selection that represents French creation in the field of virtual reality.

The cathedral is currently closed for restorations, but it’s still possible to visit it thanks to this VR experience based on the 3D model of "Assassin’s Creed Unity", developed by Ubisoft. Ubisoft proposes a virtual reality visit of Notre-Dame so people can get back to the cathedral and discover point-of-views that were inaccessible to the public, such as the roof, or elements of architecture that were destroyed by the fire, including the famous spire in a living Paris of the 18th century. In a 3X3 meters zone, the visitor is invited to look around and take a few steps to admire each perspective of the monument, from the nave to the bell towers, to the sound of its famous Cavaillé-Coll Organ performing J.S. Bach.

Walking the thin line between reality and virtuality, this documentary combines both to enhance a whole new feeling of ubiquity.

It all starts in a museum hall, where the viewer is free to walk around and interact. But as he turns his gaze to the painting, he is thrust into another world, an imaginary sensory-packed world.

Accused #2

256 hours of recordings of the Rivonia trial revivethe political fight of Mandela and 7 coaccused against apartheid. The film focuses on accused N°2, Walter Sisulu. “Mandela would, without fail, seek out Sisulu before making any kind of big decision.” It was an open secret among Mandela’s comrades in the struggle. Without Walter Sisulu, there wouldn’t have been Nelson Mandela. Sisulu was the one who found Mandela. Sisulu was his guide. Sisulu was his mentor. The world came to know about Sisulu duringthe Rivonia trial in 1963 and 1964. Mandela, accused number one, read a speech during the trial justifying why the ANC had resorted to violence. Sisulu, accused number two, was the first of the group to be cross-examined. The sound archives of the trial - which have recently been restored by the INA - allow us to relive the five days of his gripping confrontation with an overtly racist prosecutor. Sisulu, who faced the death penalty, stood up to the unrelenting aggression and gave as good as he got.
