Dome Fest West's Summer Metaverse Series presents "In the land of the flabby schnoock," a contemplative fulldome film by Francis Gelinas in which the viewer discovers a magical place through the eyes of two children. A little brother asks his big sister how she managed to stop being afraid of the dark. She draws him into a succession of dreamlike tableaus where everything comes alive and through which the little brother learns to confront his own fears.
Dome Fest West is a real-world immersive dome film festival and conference taking place on the West Coast of the United States on October 6-9, 2022.
