Converging Sensibilities is the Alternate Realities Virtual Reality Cinema for 2019, allowing you to step into the worlds and lives of others through a curated selection of powerful 360º video projects, presented as a collaborative experience, highlighting racial injustice, sexuality and modernism.
We are pleased this year to be presenting our Virtual Reality Cinema at the Sheffield Hallam Performance Lab. Projects are divided into themes as wide-ranging as 'Family and Faith', 'The World of the Artist' and 'Racial Injustice', and by booking onto specific themes you will see 2 or 3 projects within a grouping.
The programme consists of the following films that have been curated in to five bookable playlists:
Faith & Family
Hand in Hand: A story of faith and Friendship in Kumbh
Mind & Body
4 Feet: Blind Date
Injustice & Courage
Traveling While Black
Accused Number 2: Walter Sisulu
