Emperor – a VR experience

EMPEROR is an interactive narrative VR experience, in which the user is invited to travel into the brain of a father suffering from aphasia.

  • Adults, Young people

EMPEROR is a poetic experience about the loss of one's own abilities, about transience and about the bonds that remain despite everything. Players take on the perspective of the father, who has lost his ability to speak, and the daughter, who is trying to communicate with him. It is also the story of his daughter trying to get back in touch with her father. As she tries to decipher what remains of his language, she discovers the close connection between words and memory. Step by step, clue by clue, you delve into this man's inner world and try to decipher the story that he can no longer tell.

The VR experience won the Venice Immersive Achievement Award at the 2023 Venice International Film Festival and is a German-French co-production.
