Drawing on director and co-creator Milica Zec’s personal experiences as a child in war-torn Serbia, the VR narrative takes the viewer into the experience of a family struggling to survive in a war zone. The evocative film shows how cinematic VR lets us observe ourselves and our instincts, and become more conscious of the way we make choices.
“Through virtual reality the viewer can see, hear and feel what it’s like to be at the epicenter of a conflict zone,” said Zec. “They can also witness the fear and suffering that millions of innocent families around the globe are going through, at this very moment.”
The five-minute VR film “Giant” the highlight of the 2016 Sundance Film Festival New Frontier Program.
