The first Croatian VR documentary will also be shown there

Davor Rostuhar and the Club for Expeditionism and Culture (KEK) are once again pushing the boundaries and creating something completely new, revolutionary and never seen before in Croatia – virtual reality cinema.

On the KEK website, they explain this futuristic venture as follows:

"With the creation of the latest creative project about hunter-gatherers, specifically about the Hadzabe tribe in Tanzania, we asked ourselves how we want to present and show that story. All projects by Davor Rostuhar and KEK are multimedia, they take various forms, often simultaneously – such as books, photo monographs, films and lectures. KEK projects are not just stories, they are whole multidimensional worlds that can be explored again and again. With the project 'Hunters and Collectors', we decided to venture into something new and explore this story through the new medium of virtual reality. Davor Rostuhar spent 16 days on an expedition with a team in Tanzania, using the highest quality VR technology to record the first Croatian VR documentary .

Since there is no VR cinema in Croatia where we could show this film, we decided to create such a cinema ourselves! The opening of the first Croatian VR cinema is planned in November 2023 in the center of Zagreb .

More specifically, we are talking about Petrinjska Street , directly opposite the police station.

The VR cinema will allow visitors to try the latest storytelling technology and a unique entertainment experience. Along with the first Croatian VR film produced by KEK, several world-famous VR documentaries selected by Davor Rostuhar will be shown.

This unique place will gather travel lovers, adventurers, explorers and all those who don't dwell too much in the past, enjoy the present, and look to the future.
