Future Ruhr

FUTURE RUHR is an immersive urban symphony that traces the re-invention of the Ruhr area through art-science-technology and civil projects.

Produced by

Peter Petersen

Directed by

Sofia Mellino

FUTURE RUHR (2022), an urban symphony that evokes the splendour of mining and coal in the Ruhr area, passing through its decadence, arriving at its re-invention through urban movements and civil projects, thus tracing an optimistic perspective of the future by the conjunction of art-science-technology. From a technical perspective, it's the first full-dome feature made entirely with original footage recorded with 360° cameras attached to drones and airplanes, containing 2D animation generated through the visual composition of the footage itself. Developed as a research production in the framework of the KULTUR.GEMEINSCHAFTEN and NEU START KULTUR, financed by BUNDESREGIERUNG FÜR KULTUR UND MEDIEN, powered by Future Campus Ruhr NGO.
