ORA is a stunning meeting between the artistic worlds of choreographer José Navas and filmmaker Philippe Baylaucq. It is the first film to use 3D thermal imaging, producing visuals like none that have ever been seen before: the luminous variations of body heat seen on skin, bodies emitting a multitude of colours, a space filled with movement that transforms itself.

Warning: Although this film was shot in 3D, the streaming and downloadable versions are available in 2D only.

This film contains scenes of nudity and/or sexuality. Viewer discretion is advised.

Pedagogical evaluations and study guides are only available to CAMPUS subscribers.

    “Why no 3D version available! This film is a masterpiece and unfortunately is almost unknown in the 3D community. It's hard to believe that it was screened only this year in the Belgian 3D festival. This year there are so many NFB films in the selection for the Academy awards and 2 of them are in 3D… and there's not even a 3D trailer anywhere. I think that the 3D community deserves to see at least the trailers in 3D. Please make it happen! Merci, Emmanuel” — 3MOTION, 23 Dec 2013
