The Real Thing is a VR journey into a copy of our world. Around China’s largest cities, entire neighborhoods have been inspired by foreign models. The film explores the most stunning of these “fake cities.” It travels from Paris to London and Venice – without leaving China. The inhabitants guide us through their parallel world. As VR leads the way to virtual tourism, copycat cities compete to offer a real experience of static travel. Walking the thin line between reality and virtuality, this documentary combines both to enhance a whole new feeling of ubiquity.
Written & Directed by Benoit Felici Co-Directed by Mathias Chelebourg Cinematographer: Julien Malichier Produced by Artline Films & DVgroup
