The film follows a 22-year-old man, Aamir, who, whilst escaping the threat of murder in Sudan, begins a journey across Sudan, Libya, the Mediterranean, Italy and France.
The film demonstrates how VR and 360 technology can enhance the process of dramatic storytelling by placing their audiences in the shoes of another. The project was screened at the Sheffield Doc Festival (National Theatre) 2016 and continues to tour around the world.
“Home: Aamir is an entirely new type of documentary. It combines the production processes and storytelling techniques of theatre with 360 film to create a beautifully-crafted and deeply affecting virtual reality experience that takes you to the heart of the most important issue of the day – immigration – and makes you look at it with a fresh perspective and a depth of compassion rarely reached in traditional media.” Mark Atkin, Sheffield Doc Fest curator
