Immersive Encounters: virtual reality, real bodies

At this year’s Encounters Short Film Festival I checked out all of the VR they had to offer – with varying results. While I admired the attempt to make a solitary art cinematic, my body was at a loss in its engagement… so I wrote about it for BFI’s Sight & Sound online.
