Floating With Spirits (VR)

Edition 2023 Official Selection
Juanita Onzaga's VR trip Floating With Spirits immerses you in the magic hidden in the natural landscapes of the Mexican Mazatecs. Real and imagined worlds blend together in an unparalleled experience.
Floating With Spirits, the first VR installation ever selected for Film Fest Gent, offers a boundary-pushing experience to never forget. In the misty and mystical mountain region of southern Mexico, the Mazatec community celebrates the Day of the Dead. Closely connected to their ancestors and the nature spirits, a portal opens between the visible and the invisible. The Colombian-Belgian Juanita Onzaga transports you to their secret world.
