Wonderspaces, presenters of experiential art in Scottsdale since April 2019, are partnering with the School of Arts, Media and Engineering to launch a monthly Virtual Reality, VR, Film Series featuring a new celebrated VR film every month for one weekend only on the ASU Tempe campus.

End of Night directed by David Adler is a cinematic VR experience about the tormenting memories of one man's escape from Denmark to Sweden during WWII. Although realistic in its depiction of war-torn Copenhagen, and based on real accounts, the fictional experience unfolds like dimly recalled fragments of a painful memory. The audience is placed in the passenger seat of a rowboat, sitting face to face with Josef. Through the physical proximity to him and his vivid stories of both heroic and immoral acts, the audience become intimate observers of the trauma experienced by a young man forced to flee his own country. The experience reflects on the theme of survivor's guilt and the impossible choices that people on the run have to make in order to save their own lives.

Tickets are on sale at https://arizona.wonderspaces.com/tickets. Tickets are $16 for General Admission, $12 for ASU Students and $10 for Wonderspaces Members. Each visit runs for approximately 50 minutes and showtimes start on the hour from noon to 7 p.m. during exhibition weekends.
