It is important for activists to stay ahead of emerging technologies, like virtual reality. Many see the ability of VR in creating empathy by immersing the audience directly into the narrative. When you put the goggles on, you’re there. You have entered the world that the filmmaker created for you. Your body begins to react mentally and physiologically to the new environment. It is even easier for the audience to understand the message that the filmmaker is trying to convey.
This is why such a powerful medium should be embraced by activists and the general population. Immersing yourself into the VR realm can be exhilarating and enlightening.
