Child of Empire is an interactive VR docufiction experience which puts you in the shoes of a migrant during the 1947 Partition of India and Pakistan. It navigates identity and sectarianism during times of immense social upheaval.
The experience weaves together vignettes from three of our Partition witnesses’ stories. You follow an animated child who accompanies each of our characters at key moments in their migration.
You then are given the opportunity of taking these witnesses back home through VR, within the experience itself. VR becomes both the medium and the narrative as you witness these elderly individuals seeing home for the first time in decades.
