Institute History

  • 2021 Sundance Film Festival


An erotic poem combines animated landscapes, character choreography, and rhythmic ASMR sonic structure to immerse the participant in a sensorial experience of poetry, dance, and nature. Based on Weronika Lewandowska’s spoken word poem, Nightsss uses sounds characteristic of the Polish language to create onomatopoeic landscapes that cross language barriers. Before putting on your headset, slip into your favorite shirt and turn on a fan to vitalize the emotional and sensorial flow.

Device: Desktop-tethered VR headset

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.
