Institute History

  • 2020 Sundance Film Festival


This symbiosis of literature and VR innovatively and compellingly converges a book reading with virtual immersion. Based on a novella by Klaus Merz, Go visualizes an enrapt, spoken narration by focusing VR content entirely on spatially volumizing the scenes. The effect is one of dreaming with open eyes as you listen to a story of a man who sets out on a hike in the Swiss Alps, from which he will never return.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
