Venice VR 2020. Some stories stay with you forever. Back when I was a teenager, my parents would spend hours telling me about Vajont and the tragedy that took place there.
The Venice Film Festival could not go amiss without the Magic Leap One making an appearance this year. A good thing, then, as the new augmented reality glasses were featured in two interesting projects to boot—one of which is These Sleepless Nights, a documentation in AR and director Gabo Arora’s latest work.

May and Ioulia might also be stressed – wonder why – yet they took some time out to sit down and chat with me. So, without further ado: let’s explore the secrets of horror in virtual reality.
