My One Demand at Luminato Festival in June

A male performer walking through Toronto, CanadaThe world premiere of our new work by Blast Theory, My One Demand, will take place as part of this years’ Luminato Festival in June 2015.

Streamed live to Cineplex cinemas across Canada and online to an international audience, join us for this interactive film about unrequited love that follows seven people as they set out across Toronto.

Starting with a baby in the arms of a man walking out of Toronto General Hospital, we follow each person – one at a time – as they walk across an intersection and down a sidewalk, take an unexpected shortcut, drop into a dingy bar for a shot of whisky, or wriggle through a hole in the fence to gather around a fire.

Presented in a single, continuous shot, streamed live online and to select nationwide cinemas in Canada, a narrator tells us about the travellers (and herself) as each of them meets the next person. As we see their encounters unfold live, we watch and interact with the cinematic journey in real-time on our mobile devices, from inside the cinema or from our computers at home.

My One Demand will be streamed and screened live three times as part of the festival on:

Thursday, June 25th, 2015
8:00 pm – 9:30 pm (EDT)
