World premiere: Visions du Réel 2023 / Burning Lights Competiton
Somewhere on the Internet, there is a space of 250 square kilometers in which individuals gather in community to simulate a survivalist fiction. Under the guise of avatars, a film crew enters this place and makes contact with players. Who are these inhabitants? Are they actually playing? Through the encounters with these characters, the discovery of their fears and aspirations, and the creation of their own imaginary worlds, this film makes us look at the virtual world in a different way, and questions the future of our world.
