Ever since humans have settled down, they have created demarcated and strictly regulated spaces. They serve to satisfy archaic needs and thus form the basis of our culture. "ROOMS" allows you to immerse yourself in five different spatial realities. Archaic processes are illustrated with an anthropological perspective and the physical transformation of space is dramatically assembled. What makes a room a room? Is it just the demarcation by walls? // Christian Zipfel is a documentary filmmaker and VR director based in Berlin. His first VR work "ROOMS" deals with the philosophy of space. The work celebrated its world premiere at the 75th Venice Film Festival and received the Prix Immersion at the 47th Montreal Festival du nouveau cinéma. Shortly afterwards, he made the immersive documentary "The rain that is falling now was also falling back then" and spent four weeks in a Romanian prison during the course of filming. There he portrayed the lives of the prisoners. After award-winning 360 films, Zipfel now works primarily on engine-based VR experiences and gained greater recognition with his work on the "Volumetric Testimony of Holocaust Survivors". In collaboration with the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF, he has been recording interviews with Holocaust survivors in a volumetric studio since 2020.
