Fictions are taking up more and more space in our lives. In Spain, we spend an average of 459 minutes on media consumption; 7 and a half hours a day.
But how do these stories condition our life experience? Have we become addicted to fiction? Or does fiction open the door to fuller, more imaginative, and ultimately happier lives? World Fiction is a documentary series that brings us closer to a current phenomenon: how fiction is colonizing reality.
Each chapter focuses on a specific cultural practice, such as video games, virtual reality, social media, or series, and shows how, increasingly, they influence our life experiences. Combining the follow-up of users, interviews with experts, archive images and documentaries and visiting spaces or events where fiction is the protagonist, we dynamically and experientially explore the effect of each technology on society.
World fiction is a transmedia and multiformat project with the television program as a central element of the production. However, it has other types of audiovisual formats that complement and enrich the discourse of the program: content for social networks, chapters and podcasts.
