Event Description

Film Forum

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best VR Work at the 78th Venice International Film Festival, Goliath: Playing with Reality, explores the limits of reality, the weight of mental illness, and the supportive power of gaming communities. It tells the true story of Jon, a man diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, through a deft combination of highly stylized low-poly animation, artful narration by Tilda Swinton, and the sense of immersion that only VR can deliver. (10 min.)
