AS IT RELATES TO TRAUMATIC EVENTS, visual journalism and documentary films capture moments and weave them together to tell important pieces of difficult stories.
These stories, while certainly important, offer little more than a glimpse into the full experience of a person fleeing their country. A fuller, more complex story of this sort of experience is only possible as time allows perspectives to develop and current experience to seep into a unique and ever-changing identity.
Forward provides a storytelling medium with the range required to more fully articulate stories of human migration. While certainly based on events that truly happened, the virtual reality experience we are creating is not limited by the memories and emotions of the moment.
By working with individuals within the refugee community as well as local experts and artists, we can document, tell, recreate, and animate a fuller breadth of not only what happened, but the evolving feelings associated with these individual's loss, hope, and desire to continue moving forward.
