“Hey, hey, have you ever tried… reaching out to the other side?”
Gone, Gone Beyond is an immersive a/v spatial cinema work by People Like Us, which breaks the rectangle, smashing the thin screen into tiny fragments, looking beyond the frame, climbing through to see what’s behind. It uses appropriated edited collage sewn together in a giant patchwork. Pull on a thread and watch whole new narratives expand and unravel all at once on a 360 palette.
The initial 47-minute film premiered in San Francisco 11-14 October 2017 at Recombinant Festival at Gray Area Foundation for the Arts. We have been making this movie for Recombinant Media Labs own Cinechamber for quite some time now – it is a stand alone piece that you watch and listen to from the inside. Stage 2 is currently in production through 2018 and we are looking for partners to present the hour-long piece from 2019 onwards.
