Virtual Reality


‘Being Debra’ experimentally employs Virtual Reality (VR) cinematic production to immerse the viewer into the lived experience of a person with dwarfism. The purpose of this project is for the audience to have an embodied experience of having dwarfism in contemporary Australian society, thus potentially increasing empathy for a physical difference not readily emulated.

The film premieres at The Big Anxiety Festival 26 September 2019 and will be showing throughout the Festival until November, after which ‘Being Debra’ will be shown both nationally and internationally with details of dates and venues to follow.

This project is supported by funding from the Australia Council for the Arts.
