Scandi Sarcophagi Scale Down Cinema
Film festival visitors to watch outer space in tiny space.
Swedish agency Stendahls has created an intensely creepy experience to promote sci-fi film Ariana at this year's Goteborg Film Festival.
Göteborg is Scandinavia’s leading film festival and this year will be offering the world’s most claustrophobic film trip as a few select (mad!) visitors will be able to view the sci-fi film Ariana inside a 210cm x 60cm pod with built-in screens and speakers.
Aniara, the adaptation of a science-fiction poem by Nobel Prize winner Harry Martinson, sees a group of ‘climate refugees’ having to escape from a doomed planet Earth via spaceship. The passengers are forced to wrestle with obsessions and isolation while trapped inside a limited space.
“This is going to be a challenging experience that intensifies the sensation of being alone in deep space – something that characterises Aniara. We wanted to explore what happens when you see a movie in these kinds of extreme conditions. The screenings might even raise a couple of questions about the direction in which humankind is headed,” says Jonas Holmberg, creative director of the Göteborg Film Festival.
