Nowadays, the cinematographic language claims for a specific type of interpretation and understanding. The emergence of the digital image and the innovative immersive reception devices provide new and diverse possibilities of reading and interacting within the filmic narrative. That is to say, cinema is constantly reinvented and explores potential renewals within the new interactive medias. This article reflects not only on the mutations of the filmic narrative, but also on its adaptation to interactivity. It proposes, also, new models of implementation, from traditional filmic narrative towards an interactive one. The experimental project Transparency illustrates it-it is a cinematographic project, which has the main goal of studying the interactive filmic narrative. An original plot has been created and adapted to an interactive narrative structure. The project is presented under the form of an installation allowing the spectators to choose the narrative sequences of the story.
