April 23, 2018 § Leave a comment
A Four-Part Virtual Reality Docu-Series at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Place the headset and headphones on and submerge yourself into four short films, in four different global locations, all relating to climate change. Look up, down, left and right, and swivel in your chair 360 degrees to get the complete effect.
FEAST: (approximately an eight minute long 360 immersive), starts off with an aerial view flying high over the Brazilian Amazon rainforests. As you look down, you see trees vital to regulating the global climate, being chainsawed down, making room for the lucrative billion dollar cattle ranch industry.
FAMINE: transports the viewer to the once fertile land of Somalia, now a vast, dry, arid land of starving people living in squalor.
FIRE: follows the California wildfire firefighters during last years outbreak. Learn about the aerial, land, and chemical methods the firefighters use to extinguish them, while listening to the locals personal stories of loss.
MELTING ICE: Glaciers disappearing into the sea.
People at home can watch the first two episodes from the series on the same day it premieres at the festival—April 21st—via the WITHIN app, available on iPhone, Android and all major VR headsets.
