We’re proud to announce a one-night-only live performance of the upcoming, final HIGHRISE documentary, UNIVERSE WITHIN at Hot Docs, in Toronto, on April 29, 2015.
Featuring Misha Glouberman as live host (you might remember he facilitated our Filmmaker-in-Residence un-conference, HandHeld), the evening will feature a sneak preview of UNIVERSE WITHIN, which will be launched online later this year.
UNIVERSE WITHIN explores the invisible digital lives of highrise residents around the globe. From intimate whispers on Skype to explosive political uses of WhatsApp in vertical neighbourhoods under siege, Universe Within takes audiences inside the hearts, minds and computers of vertical citizens from Guangzhou to Brooklyn and places in between.
The event in April will be a mix of scripted and unscripted, recorded and live storytelling, and will be scored on stage by electronic musicians Dafydd Hughes and Nick Storring. Misha will also be in improvised conversation with the audience.
The April performance will be created by the HIGHRISE team: Technical Director Branden Bratuhin with support from the NFB’s brilliant Dan Thornhill, Associate Producer Kate Vollum, Production Coordinator Jenn Bertling, Producer David Oppenheim and Director Katerina Cizek.
