Accompanying the theatrical release of ‘My Enemy, My Brother’ is the Vancouver premiere of EYE OF THE BEHOLDER a dramatic and spectacular 4-minute FREE VR experience made available in the lobby for all theatre goers prior to the screening. Set in a conflict zone, the player encounters another soldier in a bunker who may be friend or foe. Whether the player decides to collaborate with or combat the other in the ensuing challenges, determines who gets out alive. This short VR experience questions how we prejudge others, and is a teaser for a longer VR game that will be released later in 2018. The VR experience is produced with the participation of the Bell Fund.
