Focused on imaginary tales, the series of short films selected by PHI transports you this time into eclectic, creepy, and hypnotic universes where you meet atypical characters.
Since last Spring, PHI has launched an initiative that allows you to experience the cinema differently thanks to a rental of a virtual reality headset.
While the first program allowed you to travel from Everest to China through space, this one immerses you in imaginary stories where zombies, hallucinogenic plants, and 1970s punk meet for a movie night as different as it is fun
The program includes 9 short films including two series with nearly two hours of viewing.
