A multimedia installation with the first volumetric film in Poland
Robert Wiene’s The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari from 1919 is a flagship film in the history of cinema – today it is believed to be the first fully artistic film, which raised cinema to the rank of art. It also brought the world recognition to the new film style: expressionism. For the 100th anniversary of the film’s creation, the Goethe-Institut presents a multimedia installation which will enable the viewer to enter the three-dimensional visual space, to freely follow the plot and meet characters, who are not designed using a computer, but played by actors using the 3D Human Body Reconstruction method. The central point of the installation is the VR film Cesare’s Dream, made using a pioneering world-class volumetric technique and starring Arkadiusz Jakubik and Jakub Gierszał.
