The Hangman at Home
Michelle & Uri Kranot
“What does the hangman think about when he goes home at night from work?” Inspired by the 1922 Carl Sandburg poem of the same title, acclaimed filmmakers Michelle and Uri Kranot have created a multi-media project, resulting in this animated short film as well as a single and multi-user VR installation. The animated, immersive experience invites you into five interwoven stories, featuring people caught in a pivotal moment of their life. The project explores the awkward intimacy that comes with being human, reconfiguring the connections between spectator, witness and accomplice.
In their research on Immersive Storytelling, Michelle and Uri Kranot continue to explore the frontiers of immersive art and moving images, using multi-platform storytelling to create interactive worlds.
