Last Whispers directed by Lena Herzog
At an unprecedented speed, faster than the extinction of most endangered species, we are losing our linguistic diversity—and the very means by which we know ourselves. Last Whispers is an immersive oratorio, an invocation of the languages that have gone extinct and an incantation of those that are endangered.
Ghost Fleet Directed by Shannon Service and Jeffrey
At 14, Tun Lin was kidnapped from Thailand and sold into slavery. He spent the next 14 years on a ship, forced to fish without pay. With the help of a humanitarian agency, Tun Lin escaped and returned home—but many are not so lucky.
Ghost Fleet VR offers epic storytelling and takes us to the ships, ports, and seas where the slave trade takes place, exposing these injustices and their relationship to the lucrative fishing industry.
