Lily Baldwin: Through You VR Screenings

Photo credit: Albert Sanchez and Pedro Zalba 1 1

In conjunction with the Ann Arbor Film Festival, UMS will present two screenings of Lily Baldwin and Saschka Unseld’s virtual reality film, Through You. Admission is free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.

This athletically vibrant and sensual experience explores love across a lifetime. Using dance to inhabit a common mortal story of love born, lived, lost, burned, and seemingly gone forever, Through You is a live-action VR richly infused with an atmosphere of passion. Dancers Joanna Kotze and Marni Thomas Wood, along with actor Amari Cheatom, take us through the coursing periods of time from the 1970s to 2046 and beyond, where the question is harbored, “Can love be found again?”

The screening schedule at North Quad 2435 is as follows:
Tuesday, March 20: 12pm-6pm
Wednesday, March 21 through Sunday, March 25: 10am-6pm
On-site registration is required.

Lily Baldwin is a filmmaker and dancer who makes visceral films with dance and stylized dreamscapes. Saschka Unseld is a German born-director and writer whose work intertwines the magic and wonder of modern technology with the heart of a storyteller.

The screenings will take place in two locations and feature two different unique methods for viewing. The first will take place in the lobby of the Power Center as a Renegade pre-performance Lobby Experience for UMS’s presentation of Nederlands Dans Theater and will be screened on a glass globe. The second will take place in North Quad Space 2435 (105 S. State St.) and will be screened on individual VR headsets.

Both screenings are free and open to the public, but those in North Quad Space 2435 will involve on-site registration.

Note: there will be no screenings of Through You at the Power Center on Sunday, March 25.
