Synopsis

A long time ago, the First Star defeated Darkness. But today, the Shadows have come back, and stars have disappeared from the skies once again! As a newborn star, you must rescue your sisters, and liberate them from darkness. With their help, you’ll reveal your incredible potential and learn the secrets of your constellation. Under the cover of a thrilling, fun adventure game using groundbreaking hand-tracking technology, Fight Back VR is an introduction to self- defense techniques as an answer to gender-based violence. It utilises the unmatched potential of VR as
a tool for learning and developing muscle memory, mental skills and confidence while shining a light on stories of courageous women.

Director’s Statement

My past films and experiences such as The Sun Ladies and The Key aim at delivering politically engaged messages, combining emotion and poetry. Fight Back VR continues this work, utilising VR techniques in the struggle to end violence against women, right at the intersection between video games and documentary. Our goal isn’t simply to raise awareness about self-defense; in fact, each of the game’s levels offers a real-life intro course in techniques of empowerment, alertness, and self- defense, thanks to the use of the hand tracking technology. We tap into VR’s incredible educational and therapeutic potential to develop instincts and muscle memory and to encourage participants to continue exploring the benefits of self-defense. In this sense, Fight Back VR has the potential and heartfelt desire to save lives. This project has already changed my life. I am eager to share it with the world.
