Since the beginning of the war in Yemen, which is now continuing for the fourth year, more than 10,000 people have been killed due to air strikes. The documentary presents the stories of three children whose lives have been marked by war.

At first glance, 17-year-old Abu Bakr was lucky. He was on his way to the pharmacy when a bomb hit his house. But his parents and three sisters were in the house, so in one brief moment he lost his whole family. The bombing began in 2015 after the rebels (Houthis) occupied Yemen's capital Sanaʽa. The Saudi-led coalition has responded to this by a military intervention that still persists. Abu Bakr, seven-year-old Widad and 15-year-old Akram live in constant fear of raids and uncertainty about where food and other basic living requirements will come from. Combining documentary and animated scenes, this VR film offers a unique look into the lives of children in a war-ravaged city.

Virtual Reality at One World

In the VR cinema, three bands of films are played each day at specific times. Viewers attend the screenings as they would a classic cinema. There are two short VR films in each slot, so the total time of a visit to the VR cinema does not exceed 30 minutes. The VR cinema has a capacity of 30 seats and reservations are made either online or directly in the DOX Gallery. Selected screenings will be followed by discussions with the creators and experts.
