The World VR Forum is proud to welcome Randal Kleiser presenting in European Premiere, Defrost, in synchronised screening.
With a half billion at the box office, Randal Kleiser remains a successful and enduring directing talent of feature films and television movies. His first feature Grease remains the top grossing feature directorial debut of all time as well as the top grossing musical of all time. Other features include The Blue Lagoon, White Fang, Flight of the Navigator, It’s My Party, North Shore, Lovewrecked and the critically acclaimed comedy Getting it Right.
DEFROST takes place in the year 2045, when liquid nitrogen is now commonly used to freeze patients until remedies for their illnesses are developed. The film follows the experience of Joan Garrison as she wakes up from her frozen state after thirty years. She reunites with her family, but the reunion is bittersweet, as the passage of time has caused her loved ones to become strangers. The short was filmed in 360°, allowing audience members to witness the story directly from Joan’s perspective. The result is an intimate and immersive experience unlike any other film.
