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.

Gloomy Eyes by Fernando Maldonado and Jorge Tereso and produced by Atlas V.

When the sun got tired of humans and decided to hide and never rise again, darkness awoke the dead from their graves. Since then, the clash between man and zombie sets the pace of daily life. Narrated by Colin Farrell, Gloomy Eyes is an animated trilogy and emotional tale where fantastical animated dioramas twist and rotate around you. Chase the nostalgic and heartwarming story of a zombie boy, Gloomy and a human girl, Nena, that dare to play with love. Their star-crossed love might just be the last seed of hope.

Gloomy Eyes premiered at Sundance Film Festival (2019), was awarded ‘Best VR experience’ at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival (2019) and winner of the ‘Jury Award for Storytelling’ SXSW (2019).


Tickets are on sale at https://arizona.wonderspaces.com/tickets. Tickets are $16 for adults and $12 for children under 13 and $12 for all ASU students with ID. Each visit runs for approximately 50 minutes and showtimes start on the hour from noon to 7 p.m. during exhibition weekends.
