ABSTRACT : This article aims to study the dispositif of 360 degrees cinema following approaches derived from media theory and semiotics of enunciation. The article questions this new dispositif between traditional cinema and interactive virtual reality and then focuses on certain theoretical polarities that concern it as interaction/observation and immersion/distanciation. The analysis of a 360 degree film like Pierre Zandrowicz’s I, Philip (2016) will allow us to question more pertinently the topics of the frame, of the on-screen/off-screen relation and of the enunciative situation of this vision experience and then open up towards a first hypothesis on the enunciative gesture.
