VR: On the Road (Short) (2018)

This short South Korean virtual reality film mixes static and moving imagery to evoke words sent from a man to a woman as he revisit the places they went to together. Like a poem, we sense the emptiness of the spaces without her, the monochrome of lost punctuated by the saturated colour of memory.

Subtitled virtual reality is always a bit harder as it restricts your ability to explore the 360° visual space. I stole glances between phrases and wondered perhaps whether the meaning of the words was all that important.
