It's the largest VR purchase yet at Sundance and evidence that VR as a medium is growing.

CityLights purchased the rights to Spheres, the three-part VR black hole series written by Eliza McNitt and produced by Darren Aronofsky's Protozoa Pictures, for a "seven-figure" amount at the Sundance Film Festival.

It's the first-ever seven-figure VR purchase at Sundance.

The Spheres deal could set the tone for Sundance and other VR-friendly festivals in the future.

Dive into the heart of a black hole and uncover the hidden songs of the cosmos. In this interactive VR experience, the breakthrough discovery of gravitational waves transforms how we see the Universe. Fall into the darkness, and you will find the light.

Written + Directed by Eliza McNitt
Narrated by Jessica Chastain
Executive Produced by Darren Aronofsky & Ari Handel
