Through Your Eyes

05.04.19

Virtual reality arrives to the Human Rights Film Festival with fourteen short films. They could be seen between April 5th and 7th at the Festival's Information Office, at the Victoria Eugenia Theater (plaza Okendo). Time table: 11:00 - 14:00 / 16:00 - 20:00.

The constant exposure to images of conflicts and human rights violations can sometimes lead to indifference or desensitization. Therefore, virtual reality and immersive experiences can be powerful audiovisual tools for generating empathy. In fact, the UN itself already has its VR department. This exhibition shows us a new way of tackling human rights issues, featuring ten pieces that represent some of the developments in this area.
