Visão do Paraíso, 16 min.
The film is an examination of the capacity of the human imagination and computer simulation for constructing environments. Amid the fine threshold of the real, simulated, and imagined, it analyzes virtual reality and its ambition to expand the physical world into a ‘New World.’
