A film company called Parable have produced a Channel 4 documentary in virtual reality about people’s lives in Grenfell before the fire. It’s a positive 15 minute film with beautiful and respectful animation, with no graphic or disturbing images. We are told all the people who watched it so far, including survivors, really liked the film.
The film is called ‘Grenfell: Our Home’ and the producers have been working with Grenfell United and the Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Adult Service to organise three days of screenings next week for the local community, providing on-site support by having NHS therapists present in case the content brings up any issues (the film includes a short section on the fire itself). The documentary will be released on 3rd July and it premiered last week at the Sheffield DocFest, where it won the VR Audience Award. You can see a one minute trailer at the following link https://www.facebook.com/Channel4News/videos/10155992728551939/
The screenings are free and are taking place next week on 28th, 29th and 30th June. All Lancaster West residents are welcome to attend. They are showing the film in slots and, in order to allocate the right number of headsets, people are invited to book on Eventbrite.
They have a dedicated email for any enquiries, which is email@example.com.
