Interactive video projects often weigh mechanics against storytelling, creating an unbalanced final product: it’s a technical achievement or a quality story, but rarely both. EKO, a new video platform that responds to the viewer’s input, may finally have balanced the scales. Audiences are invited to experience several interactive shorts built on this new platform: Gleam, a documentary about a small town paper; That Moment When, a comedy that asks the viewer to navigate a battery of awkward conversations; Then/Now, a Rashomon-inspired story focused on the various perspectives swirling around a relationship on the rocks; and Ticking Bomb, a tale of two intersecting worlds set to Aloe Blacc’s song.

On view in the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center on October 1 and 2.
