Synopsis

VR Free explores the nature of incarceration spaces by portraying some fractions of life inside the Turin prison. The film also captures the reaction of few inmates during their encounter with immersive videos of life outside of prison. By using the VR headsets, the prisoners get to virtually participate in some collective and intimate situations which are no longer within their reach.

Director’s Statement

I believe that virtual reality is a powerful tool in dealing with the concept of space. We tried to use this potential in an expressive and dramatic manner, by bringing this new medium inside a world which is per se full of harsh and aggressive spaces. VR Free is an attempt to bring the hidden world of prison in front of the public’s eye, a call to participate in the urgent discussion about our detention spaces.
