In the Kauai jungle, a 1985 sound recording is revived by means of VR, when a researcher sets out to search for a single feathered singer named ʻōʻō.
In the middle of the jungle a unique encounter takes place with the last representative of a species, the bird ʻōʻō. An interactive hen party allows the viewer to briefly experience the situation of a dying species. What it means to be really the last. How are we to say goodbye to an animal involuntarily sentenced to solitude? The end of a species or a "virtual moment of extinction" was created in collaboration with the virtual team of The Guardian, and was successfully featured at the Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival, where it was awarded the main VR prize, as well as at the Festival du nouveau cinéma Montreal, where it won a special award.
