NAVIGATING #CINEMALAYA17, ONE ISLAND AT A TIME

August 17, 2021

PRESS RELEASE

August 17, 2021

NAVIGATE through your screens and explore CURRENTS: A Virtual Reality Cinemalaya Experience, this year’s online exhibition presented by the CCP Visual Arts and Museum Division in conjunction with the 17th Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival.

This year’s Cinemalaya exhibition joins in exploring the festival’s theme of expanding horizons and breaking boundaries.  Following the poster exhibition presented last year, this year’s exhibition goes beyond the walls and galleries of the traditional virtual exhibition format.  The use of VR technology allows viewers to access and immerse themselves in a completely conceptual digital space.  CURRENTS invites viewers to a journey in the Cinemalaya balangay to visit thirteen mysterious islands, with only cryptic photographs in a found bottle as a guide.

Join the exploration beginning 17 August 2021 to find out where the journey ends!  Click https://bit.ly/currentsvrexperience to enjoy.  Best experienced with VR headsets.

The creators behind CURRENTS, Da Young Ko, Mariah Reodica and The Buildings, will also have an artist talk on August 28, Saturday at 4PM. The talk will be streamed in the CCP Facebook pages and Kumu.
