Description [en]

Immersive VR360 short film. Directed by Peter Hegedus.

Abstract [en]

Sorella's Story brings to life a smuggled atrocity photograph from December 1941 and places it into 360° immersive space. The photograph depicts the humiliation and murder of close to 4000 women and children on a Latvian beach allowing the viewer to accompany some of the women and an 11-year-old girl, Sorella, as they embark on their last journey.

The memory of the Holocaust is fading, with studies revealing that two-thirds of millennials born after 1981 don’t know what Auschwitz is (Zauzmer 2018), and a higher percentage are ignorant of basic facts about Nazism and the Holocaust. And with anti-Semitism and extreme right-wing ideologies on the rise, Sorella’s Story is a visceral reminder and warning of how prejudice can escalate to devastating tragedy.

Sorella’s Story is a Soul Vision Films production, with principal production funding from Screen Australia in association with Screen Queensland, Griffith University’s Disrupting Violence Beacon and Dalarna University in Sweden
