From Nine To Noon, 11:26 am on 12 April 2017

When you mention virtual reality, most people's thoughts turn to video games, but not Gabo Arora. He is the Creative Advisor on VR to the UN which is revolutionizing the coverage of conflicts and natural disaster. In just seven minutes his immersive film making has the power to change lives and is already shaking up the United Nations' advocacy efforts. Gabo Arora will deliver a keynote address and discuss social change documentaries at Screen Edge Forum which is part of the Documentary Edge International Film Festival that's coming to Wellington (10 - 21 May) and Auckland (24 May - 5 June).
