The 45-minute interactive virtual reality caper invites viewers to solve puzzles in a city lost to time, blending animation with classic noir in an immersive environment driven by Unreal Engine.
Madrid Noir, a 45-minute VR adventure directed by animator James Castillo that debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival, is now available on Oculus 1 & 2. The interactive caper, driven by Unreal Engine, encompasses the moodiness of classic noir paired with expressiveness of animation, providing viewers a chance to piece together puzzles of the past and solve mysteries in a city lost to time.
After her estranged uncle is declared dead, a disenchanted young woman arrives in Madrid to empty the apartment he left behind. Lola is soon compelled to dig into her memories, where she'll pick up her uncle's shadowy trail and attempt to piece together the puzzles of the past. Staged as an awe-inspiring theatre production, this charming mystery unfolds across a city that lives in the night, a Madrid now lost to time.
Madrid Noir is brought to life by Godeliv Van Den Brandt as Lola Petit and Fernando Guillén Cuervo as Manolo Monreal. The film is executive produced by Antoine Cayrol, Arnaud Colinart and Luke Gibbard.
