Polydomous and New World

360 films by Janire Najera & 4Pi Productions and Natalia Oliwiak


Dome Fest West's Summer Metaverse Series presents "Polydomous," a fulldome film by Janire Najera & 4Pi Productions and "New World," a fulldome film by Natalia Oliwiak.

Polydomous Description: "Spatially separated but socially connected. This fulldome film takes us on a journey through fragments of life across the human and natural worlds highlighting our connections and the challenges of interrelated networks."

New World Description: "New World - a sensory movie being sort of an urban/natural diptych juxtaposing two worlds: a modern metropolis and painterly landscapes. The show demonstrates the problem of sensory overloads to which city dwellers are exposed, as well as the need for remaining in touch with nature. Through spherical recordings, the viewer is absorbed into a metropolitan space that overwhelms with its enormity, encloses within the limits of tall buildings and puts into the framework of a street network. Ever-faster changing images, increasing noises, cars and crowds of people evoke anxiety and the desire to escape from the urban world in order to seek solace and tranquility in the surroundings of wild nature."

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.
