幻象,業力,天啟,自閉。
一名旅客發覺自己身陷人世裂縫之中,無法確定自己的命運。

Illusion, Karma, Apocalypse, Autism.
A passenger found himself being trapped inside a game of gods.

THE AWARD-WINNING VR FILM
BY WEN-E STUDIO.

Woke up in nothingness.
Through the wilderness,
You were on your own.

Trembling in the breeze.
Off the ground.
Interlink.

Feeling a quick spin out of the realm.

『大洪水到來,所有人被沖進地底,夢中世界恢復平靜,真實世界依然貧脊。

在荒涼的乾土中,重生了幾朵孤伶的鮮花。』

 

-Hsieh Wen-Yee-


 

《彼岸LIMBOTOPIA in VR》虛構了夢境中映射的現實世界。

你成為那位重生的旅客,跟隨著來自地底的信號前往彼岸。

一觸即破的現實、空無一人午夜鬼城、反覆預見的燈塔、受到召喚乘上列車,

墜入陰鬱深淵,置死地而後生。

在這場如夢似幻的寓言故事裡,我們重新思考在無邊世界間何為存在。

FIRST-TIME DIRECTOR HSIEH WEN-YEE PRESENTS A SURREAL TRIP THROUGH A POST-APOCALYPTIC TAIWAN.

ADAPTED FROM THE ARCHITECTURE DESIGN, HE DEVELOPED THE NARRATIVE EXCLUSIVELY IN VR, WITH THE ARCHITECTURE DESIGNER CHENG CHUN-LIEN.

 

"LIMBOTOPIA" REFERS TO AN IMAGINED WORLD WHERE TIME SEEMS TO STAND STILL: A STATIC AND OFTEN HOPELESS PRESENT, SUSPENDED BETWEEN THE POLES OF UTOPIA AND DYSTOPIA. AFTER AN ENVIRONMENTAL CRISIS IN CONTEMPORARY TAIWAN, PARTICIPANTS BECOME PASSENGERS JOURNEYING THROUGH ONE SUCH MONOCHROMATIC ETERNITY, SUBMERGED IN PHANTASMAGORICAL ANIMATIONS MERGING THE MICROSCOPIC AND THE MONUMENTAL.

PREMIERING AT TRIBECA, HSIEH’S FULLY IMMERSIVE 360-DEGREE VR EXPERIENCE SEEMS TO DEFY THE LAWS OF GRAVITY AND PERSPECTIVE. HYPNOTIC IMAGERY AND AN ATMOSPHERIC ELECTRONIC SOUNDSCAPE CONJURE A LIMINAL SPACE BETWEEN DREAM AND NIGHTMARE, BETWEEN ABSTRACTION AND ANNIHILATION. THE RESULT IS EERIE, INNOVATIVE AND UTTERLY SPELLBINDING.

-Director’s Statement-

這是根據一份建築設計《LIMBOTOPIA》所改編的電影。

原著建築設計《LIMBOTOPIA》中,是在描寫一虛構故事。

一個真實存在於台灣的地理位置,在數年過後受到環境侵蝕而消失時,想像整個空間的消亡意味著在彼方的重生。

遙遠彼方重生的一座座建築,都是人間險惡與鬥爭的現形,那些建築群自成語言。
當著手改編成VR電影《彼岸LIMBOTOPIA in VR》時,彼岸被建立了一個巨大的時空背景;

世界發生巨大的變化、你認識的世界已經不再安穩、你需要從你熟悉的環境離開、移動到下一個境界。


在廣大的世界中,你在為了什麼而戰? 你的信仰又在何方?

與建築設計原概念不同的是,VR電影更多關注在堅定、恐懼、以及信念。

如何在這個無邊的世界邁步前行、為信仰而戰。
你我或許都困在一個資本主義的城市、世界,思考存在、不得其解、但想要更多,

超越假象,在淤泥深淵間堅信信仰。

重新思考自己為何存在。藉著光,盼能尋找到它。

WEN-E

This is a film based on an architecture design "LIMBOTOPIA",

the original architecture design "LIMBOTOPIA", is depicting a fictional story.

When a real location in Taiwan disappears after a few years due to environmental erosion, imagine that the demise of the whole space means the rebirth in the other side. A building reborn in a distant place is a manifestation of the danger and struggle in the world, and those buildings are a language of their own.
In the VR film,

the environment has changed so much that the world you know is no longer stable.

you need to leave where you are familiar with and move to "the next realm".


What are you fighting for in the vast world? Where does your faith lie?

Unlike the original concept of architecture design,

the VR film is more concerned with determination, fear, and belief.

How to march forward in this boundless world and fight for your faith.
You and I may be trapped in a capitalist city,

in a world where we think about existence, can't understand it, but want more,

to leave the illusion in front of us,

to stand firm in our faith in the muddy abyss.

To all of those who live by night,

we do search for our lights.
