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.
UNREST VR premiered in the Virtual Arcade at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. It was also showcased at Sheffield Doc/Fest in the Immersive VR section of the Alternate Realities Exhibition, where it won the Alternative Realities VR Award.
NB! This is a BIFF Expanded project which can be experienced at Visningsrommet USF. The exhibition is open from Wednesday 27 September to Wednesday 04 October between 13:00 and 20:00.
