VIRTUAL REALITY: Clouds over Sidra and The Displaced

9 November 2021 from 5PM to 8PM (UNHCR), A4 – Space For Contemporary Culture

Today, up to 65 million people are forced to live away from their homes because of war or natural disasters. Another 22 million have left home due to climate change. In partnership with the UNHCR, we bring you a glimpse into the reality of refugees through two short documentaries projected in virtual reality.

In Clouds over Sidra, an 8-minute short documentary, you will have the opportunity to see the world through the eyes of 12-year-old Sidra, who lives in the largest refugee camp, Zaʼatari, in northern Jordan, along with around 80,000 refugees from Syria.

The Displaced will take you briefly through the lives of 11-year-old Oleg from Ukraine, 12-year-old Hana from Syria and 9-year-old Chuol from South Sudan. These children have been displaced from war-ravaged places and have experienced the trauma of having to save their own lives or the loss of loved ones. These are just three children’s fates among the fates of 30 million others, according to a UN report earlier this year.
