The Horrifically Real Virtuality, presented by Phi as a Canadian premiere, invites you on set of a new film by Ed Wood (the worst filmmaker of all time!). Created by DVgroup and directed by Marie Jourdren, the immersive drama invites the viewer to explore a new narrative genre, an artistic and technological innovation. It allows the public to evolve in a virtual environment while interacting physically and in real time with characters and material objects. After, the experience continues with an immersion in the amazing universe of Ed Wood, thanks to a scenography imagined by Phi.

The “film” stars Bela Lugosi, the actor known for his vampire portrayals, who agrees to participate in his friend Ed Wood’s film, to help give him a chance in Hollywood. Lugosi possesses a unique ability to access a parallel dimension, in virtual reality, where he’s called upon to meet strange humanoids from another space-time: the Phi Centre in 2019.
