It is an Immersive Dome Film Festival and Conference taking place on the West Coast of the United States. Dome Fest West asks the question: What’s the Next BIG Thing in film presentation? Answer: “immersive films” Using 360-degree technology popularized by VR and AR productions, filmmakers create unique, immersive experiences by screening the films in specially built dome theaters not unlike the planetariums that can be found in observatories around the country.
Two children, Max Winton and Lucia Richardson, go on a magical odyssey through time and space, exploring the mysteries of the Universe via the world’s largest radio telescope and its oldest living culture.
In the arid heartland of the Murchison region of Western Australia, Max and Lucia, visit the remote site of the Square Kilometre Array or SKA radio telescope. There, they learn about the beginnings of time and space and the life cycle of stars.
Then through a special door, Max and Lucia enter the ancient land of the Yamaji people where they meet with artists, Charmaine Green. She becomes their guide as they travel through the land of her ancestors and introduces them to other artists and their paintings. The artists share with the children star stories that have been passed on from generation to generation.
Max and Lucia discover how much the scientific world and the ancient world have in common, for we all live under one sky, a shared sky.
