The two main protagonists of a scene in Gerda Leopold’s film are wearing the camera-helmet in turn. The 5 cameras are capturing the front, left, right, up and back of the protagonist’s surroundings. Each scene is filmed twice. First, out of the view of actor A, then out the view of actor B. The final 5 films are edited like any other film and will be projected in sync onto the 4 walls plus ceiling of an especially designed projection space (10m x 10m x 8m). The subjective view enables the audience to experience directly the whole spectrum of human behaviour. They are experiencing the action of the film through the eyes of the protagonists.
