The first-ever Polish feature film in VR will be presented at the Innovation Tel Aviv Festival on 5th and 6th September 2018.
A Postcard from the Uprising is Poland’s first-ever virtual reality historical feature film. It tells the story of Captain Władysław 'Sabała' Sieroszewski, who fought in the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. Before he left home, his daughter gave him a slip of paper with a prayer. He was soon to find out how that piece of paper would change his fate. The film was directed by Tomasz Dobosz and produced by Mariusz Laszuk and produced by VRHeroes Studio in co-production with the National Centre for Culture Poland. It will be shown at the DLD Tel Aviv Innovation Festival.
VR provides a here-and-now experience of virtual reality. A combination of stereoscopic image, which emulates 3D depth and space, with ambisonics creates a sense of immersion. VR goggles override human senses and take the viewer into a different reality.
DLD Tel Aviv Innovation Festival is Israel’s biggest event dedicated to innovation, digital media, science and culture, which annually brings together thousands of professionals, business people and investors from Israel and around the globe. The event showcases the latest trends in technology and networking and helps start-ups and investors network with potential partners.
The screenings organised in a partnership of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute and the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development (PARP) are a part of presentations at the Polish information and promotion stand organised by PARP at this year’s DLD Tel Aviv Digital Conference under the umbrella of the DLD Tel Aviv Innovation Festival.
