CHILD OF EMPIRE‘ is a new short virtual reality (VR) and immersive film which drops the viewer into the tumultuous events of 1947 as seen by two survivors.
Using a headset, you travel back in time to see what they saw and witnessed in very vivid and at time realistic detail with your own eyes.
The film enjoyed its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and is now available to view (for free) at the BFI Southbank until August 8 and then will embark on UK tour.
