Making of tx-reverse 360°

What happens in a cinema when you film it at a resolution of 10K with a 360° camera and then reverse the spatial and temporal axes? In a way never before shown, "tx-reverse 360°" shows the collision of reality and cinema and draws its viewers into a vortex in which the familiar order of space and time is suspended.
