Virtual Reality Film Screening: Clouds Over Sidra
On Wednesday, December 7th, The University of Toronto Refugee Alliance (UTRA) will host two virtual reality movie screenings of Clouds Over Sidra by filmmaker Gabo Arora, from 4-5 PM and 5-6 PM at the Main Activity Hall, Multifaith Centre.
This event is organized in partnership with Artscape and tells the story of life inside the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan through the eyes of a 12-year old girl named Sidra. To watch the film, participants wear Samsung Gear VR headsets that place them in the centre of life inside the camp in an extraordinarily immersive experience. Join us for an evening of conversation on the global refugee crisis, and ways in which we can all positively impact resettlement efforts at home and abroad!
In lieu of an admission fee, we will be accepting donations at the door. 100% of the proceeds will go towards Artscape to support The Sidra Project.
Dinner will be provided (vegan options available). There will be a prayer and meditation space located across the event room.
As space is limited, we encourage participants to register for one of the screenings only if they can ensure their attendance.
