Step into the stillness of an abandoned school and enter Gymnasia, a place where the ghostly ephemera of a lost childhood await you. Recall the sights and sounds of a child’s world through the echoes of ball games, school lessons and choir recitals. Blending 3D-360 video, stop-motion, miniatures and CGI, Gymnasia is a dark dream – unsettling and weirdly wonderful.
