What started out last year as an experiment at the Dutch VR Days grew into a full blown VR production. Ashes to Ashes will have its world premiere at the same event where it all started: at the VR Days.
Ashes to Ashes is a surreal, tragicomedy in virtual reality about how a dysfunctional family handles the dying wish of their grandfather. Seen through the ‘eyes’ of the deceased –the urn containing the ashes– this short VR film gives a unique point of view on a bizarre set of family relationships that are ready to blow up. We witness how each family member drops their pretences to reveal the full extent of their dishonesty. Ultimately, Ashes to Ashes is about choosing your own reality, your imagination, your world.
Ashes to Ashes will be presented at international festivals and events before launching online in 2017.
