Meet Mortaza is an immersive and interactive experience — in VR and AR — sharing the intimacy of a man who was forced into exile. Ten years ago, Mortaza had to flee Afghanistan because of a fatwa launched against him.
After three months through a dangerous and clandestine road, Mortaza hopefully arrived in the country he wished to ask for asylum: France. Today, after he struggled with French administration for more than three years, his refugee status is guaranteed in France, he works as a social coordinator for newcomers, he got married and has just had a baby.
Users evolve in two definite spaces, recalling Mortaza’s journey from Kabul to Paris: first, the VR room, to watch the 3D 360 film. Then, the AR walk-through, designed around Mortaza’s personal objects.
This film is part of the VR Selection of the Institut français, which offers members of France’s overseas cultural network (the cultural services of French embassies, Instituts français and Alliances Françaises) a selection of French virtual reality contents for non-commercial use, within their venues or those of their partners.
