A tied up and blindfolded Iranian journalist sits in a darkened room together with a beaten up colleague. More interrogation and torture await him. One wrong nod of the head can mean instant death.

It is 1979 and Iran is in the throes of a revolution that will forever change the shape of the country. People in the streets protest against the increasing Islamisation and radical behaviour of the ruling forces. The more courageous journalists uncover the violent propaganda practices of the new leaders. Many of these journalists end up in jail. This virtual reality project draws on one of the stories of an anonymous journalist, interrogated by the notorious investigator Asadollah Lajevardi. This project on the boundary of documentary and animated film works with the viewer's reactions – they respond to Lajevardi's questions either by nodding their head yes or shaking their head no. This VR experience is dedicated to all war correspondents who have lost their lives while doing their work

Virtual Reality at One World

A viewer with a ticket can try at least two projects within one hour. If more time is available, they can even try more projects. Every viewer sets the exact time of their arrival at the exhibit in the booking system. If a visitor does not arrive in time, their place may be given to other guests. Upon arrival at the exhibit, each visitor can book one project for which he or she will have priority access. We therefore recommend that those interested in a particular project come at least 15 minutes before the start of the time slot they have purchased.
