"A postcard from the uprising" - screenings in the MSSW New Technologies Zone
VR goggles and headphones now allow us to travel back in time to Warsaw in August 1944, where we can experience insurgents looking us straight in the eye, being blinded by the light while leaving the sewers, and hearing the sounds of fighting all around us.
"A Postcard from the Uprising" is the first Polish fictionalized historical spectacle made using the technology of virtual reality. And I have to admit that the impression is simply amazing. The 360-degree perspective allows you to completely immerse yourself in the story being told. Other characters seem to be right next to us, looking us straight in the eye. Looking around, we can see what Warsaw must have looked like in the heat of the insurgency and fighting. We hear shots from all sides, we see tanks, and the sewer walls are at our fingertips. It is an experience that is hard to describe.
