The myth of Demeter and Persephone is set in a 3D-animated world. Inspired by virtual reality, filmmaker Ryan Cherewaty questions the cycle of life and death, and its validity in a digital world that is not controlled by time. What happens when the continuous cycle of life and death is broken, and mortals become gods themselves?
