Unrest VR is an interactive non-fiction experience inspired by Jennifer Brea’s feature documentary Unrest (Sundance 2017 Special Jury Award). An immersive journey into Jen’s experience of an invisible illness, myalgic encephalomyelitis, the project contrasts the painful solitary confinement of a bedroom world with the kinetic freedom of an inner dreamscape. When you’re too sick to leave your bed, where do you go? 

 

On March 27, during a case study of the feature documentary Unrest and the accompanying virtual reality installation Unrest VR, Rebecca Ashdown, a campaign director for Together Films, a marketing, distribution & data agency based in London, will focus on the unique hybrid distribution model, the creative ways of maximising non-theatrical screening campaigns, and reaching your target audience using the right platform.
