THE REAL THING is a VR journey into a copy of our world.
Around China s largest cities, entire neighbourhoods have been inspired by foreign models.
The film explores the most stunning of these “fake cities”. It travels from Paris to London and Venice – without leaving China. The inhabitants guide us in the parallel world where they have chosen to live.
As VR leads the way to virtual tourism, copycat cities compete to offer a real experience of static travel. Walking the thin line between reality and virtuality, this documentary combines both to enhance a whole new feeling of ubiquity.
