Darren Aronofsky’s “Mother!” Now Showing in the ISM Hexadome
August 29, 2019
A special screening of American director Darren Aronofsky’s controversial environmental parable Mother! will be shown in the innovative ISM Hexadome at the 2019 MUTEK festival. The New York-based audiovisual collective Little Cinema adapted the film into a multiscreen narrative experience created especially for this event.
The intimate film is shot almost entirely within an octagon-shaped house. The ISM Hexadome, which is an innovative structure with six large screens forming a hexagon, mirrors this shape, placing the viewer inside the movie as the screens wrap around 360 degrees. The result is a one-of-a-kind immersive cinematic experience.
Hexadome is a collaboration between MUTEK and the Institute for Sound & Music (ISM) in Berlin, which is also presenting nine other immersive works by artist duos: Suzanne Ciani & AudeRrose, Ben Frost & MFO, CAO & Michael Tan, Holly Herndon & Mathew Dryhurst, Frank Bretschneider & Pierce Warnecke, Lara Sarkissian & Jemma Woolmore, Peter Van Hoesen & Heleen Blanken, René Löwe & Pfadfinderei, Tarik Barri & Thom Yorke.
The MUTEK festival is as an international rendezvous for original and avant-garde programming. In terms of content, the festival’s range strives to be diverse, with interests in both the experimental and the playful sides of digital creativity. MUTEK’s programming intends to create a sonic space that can support innovation in new electronic music and digital art.
