BYSTANDING. IMMERSIVE VR ANIMATIONS
Bystanding is a Virtual Reality experience that combines documentary, fiction, and animation. It aims to raise questions about our responsibilities towards people in distress, and specifically deals with "the bystander effect".
The experience was created by Nim Shapira and Roi Lev. It is co-produced with Canadian studio KngFu and German studio AnotherWorldVR.
Bystanding is supported by the Canada Media Fund (CMF) and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg (MBB), KAN (the Israeli public broadcaster), and Gesher amd Makor film funds.
