VIRTUAL REALITY

Unrest VR is an interactive non-fiction experience inspired by Jennifer Brea’s feature documentary Unrest (Sundance 2017 Special Jury Award). An immersive journey into Jen’s experience of an invisible illness, myalgic encephalomyelitis, the project contrasts the painful solitary confinement of a bedroom world with the kinetic freedom of an inner dreamscape. When you’re too sick to leave your bed, where do you go?

A prototype of Unrest VR premiered in the Virtual Arcade at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival and was shown at Sheffield Doc/Fest, where it won the award for best VR project.
