Experience the Horror of Ebola in this New VR film
By James Temperton
Waves of Grace, created by Gabo Arora and Chris Milk, is the second UN project from LA-based Vrse.works. It hopes to use VR to bring decision-makers and politicians closer to the issues they govern on, helping to finally explain the true horror of Ebola.
The short film, created in collaboration Vice Media, features scenes from a local market, a school and a town square -- but it is the eyes of the people that draw you into their haunting world. In a graveyard the viewer is positioned precariously over a freshly-dug grave while the latest Ebola victim is steadily lowered in.
