For the closing evening of the Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois 2016, we created an immersive experience based upon the popular television series “Série noire”. In the elevator of the Cinémathèque québécoise, each participant put on a virtual reality headset only to find themselves in the elevator they had just entered. With the original music from the series creating a suspenseful atmosphere, spectators experienced an imaginary trip to the building’s basement. As the doors open, cult figure Marc Arcand bursts forth with his characteristic eloquence, throwing himself into an impressive nunchaku choreography. It is an intriguing, but captivating entry point into his “Marc Arcand World”.
