Live AV screening of Distrust Everything by Lorem, featuring AcreMon 27 Mar 2023
We’re excited to be bringing a live AV screening of Lorem’s Distrust Everything to the UK on Wednesday 19 April, as part of New Cinema Days.
Images from a subconscious human and AI realm come alive in the UK premiere of this immersive cinema performance from Lorem.
Distrust Everything is a performative, immersive, AV installation with a plot completely generated by AI and a soundscape created by Manchester based producer Acre. Audiences are immersed in an uncanny, synthetic dream.
What happens when ruptures briefly reveal what is behind the veil of our reality? Will we know the difference between dreams and reality?
The interactive work explores the relationship between Fiction and Truth in the age of artificial intelligence, through an aesthetic experience that challenges our perception of inner and outer landscapes.
This live, immersive cinema event will be followed by a short Q&A with Lorem.
