The festival opens with Lou Andreas-Salomé: The Audacity to be Free directed by Cordula Kablitz-Post and about the life of the controversial 19th century European intellectual, the first female psychoanalyst, and her reverberations into the lives of Friedrich Nietzsche and Paul Rée.
Utilizing Samsung Gear VR, the SRFF will also be screening a series of VR/360º films that will immerse viewers in the world of a toy scuba diver (Down to the Plastic Ocean), a slum on the outskirts of Nairobi (My Beautiful Home), the forests of Brazil (Our Nature - Honey Production), and more.
