More About the Film

The VR experience Dislocation takes a look at an absurd moment of disbelief and fear. It examines the internal processes that develop and offers a visual depiction of a person forced into extreme circumstances – a moment of dislocation. We follow the protagonist along a beach in Greece, the Texas desert and a Slovenian forest and journey into his mind where the memories of his lost home slowly decay.
