ARTE @ National Arts Museum of Romania:

• Two episodes of THE ADVENTURERS OF MODERN ART series, covering the Parisian art history during war and propaganda;

• The Temptation of St Anthony, Hieronymus Bosch - a short documentary, accompanied by virtual reality experience. It epitomises the complexity of the artistic message, the artist as a visionary, and art’s endurance over time. A world populated by obscurantism, where few individuals are struggling, using the weapons of reasoning - it's simply surprising how much it relates to the present.

• SERGEI SHCHUKIN, TALE OF AN ART COLLECTOR - one character's story opens for us the reality of an era, Russia before Lenin and Stalin. A story never told before. Beyond history, Shchukin is a genuine character, obsessesed with arts. His collection, recently exhibited in Paris, is available via virtual reality technology.

• Note on Blindness - a feature film and a virtual reality experience. The most precise, profound and refined view of the visually impaired.
