A Way To Go

Way to Go is an interactive experience for human beings between 5 and 105 years old. Maybe it lasts six minutes; maybe it lasts forever.

Way to Go is ready for your web browser and willing to go VR, if you’re Rift‑y. It is like a grey squirrel balanced on a branch, fearless.

Made by Vincent Morisset, Caroline Robert, Édouard Lanctôt-Benoit and the studio AATOAA, visionary creators of BLA BLA and Arcade Fire’s award-winning Just A Reflektor. Produced by the National Film Board of Canada, co-produced by France Televisions, with a mesmerizing soundtrack by Philippe Lambert, it is a game and a solace and an alarm, a wake-up call to the hazards of today.

At a moment when we have access to so much, and see so little, Way to Go will remind you of all that lies before you, within you, in the luscious, sudden pleasure of discovery.

Utterly beguiling animated walk in the woods.
  • Exploration feature was great – didn’t know what to expect
  • Great animation
  • Didn’t work on my version of Chrome – kept crashing
  • Sound was not smooth
