Spotlight: Country – Switzerland. This short film plunges us into Arnold Böcklin's painting The Isle of the Dead, following a character who finds himself in a boat accompanied by his smuggler. Guided by the voice of Yann Marguet, this virtual reality work offers a fun and interactive way to discover this famous painting that has inspired filmmakers, artists and comic authors over the years.

Martin Charrière

In 2013, he returned to Switzerland and co-founded DNA Studios, where he creates animation films and develops video games.
