Virtual Reality (VR). It is the sharpest tool that ever existed for telling a story. Ever! That’s what VR film-maker Gina Kim says. Successfully, she makes us viewers experience – with full viewer particiption – the last moments in the life of a South Korean sex worker who bleeds to death after having been fatally assaulted by her sex customer, a US soldier.
”I use VR to enable empathy”, says Gina Kim, creator of the narrative Virtual Reality (VR) film Bloodless. She’s speaking on Skype to us – an audience of about thirty-five people at Västsvenska Filmdagarna in Göteborg, Sweden.
