Synopsis

At the age of 24, Mortaza had to flee his own country, Afghanistan, because he was sentenced to death by the religious authorities. Forced into exile, through a dangerous and clandestine road, Mortaza will reach Europe to join the country he wished to ask for asylum: France.
Meet Mortaza VR tells the twelve-year-journey of a young man who wanted to live free. The experience plunges the audience into Mortaza’s recollections, sharing his intimacy, dreams, doubts and fights for freedom.

Director’s Statement

Meet Mortaza VR is a poetic form of documentary that tackles the themes of exile and asylum in an intimate and positive way. Following the traces of his journey from Kabul to Paris, the experience gradually prepares the audience to discover Mortaza himself.
This VR film is part of a wider installation, including an AR walkthrough, coming in 2021.
