VR Film Starring Tsai Ming-Liang to Open at Tribeca Film Festival in June
A virtual-reality (VR) film featuring Malaysian-born, Taiwan-based director Tsai Ming-liang (蔡明亮) in the lead role is to premiere in a lineup of “immersive” films at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival in June, the festival announced on Tuesday.
Missing Pictures Episode 2: Tsai Ming-liang is the second installment in a series of documentary shorts by French filmmaker Clement Deneux that focuses on directors’ favorite stories that they were never able to bring to the big screen.
The film, which can be viewed using VR headsets such as the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, was one of 11 to be selected for the “Virtual Arcade” category of the festival’s immersive cinema lineup.
