The film explored the most stunning of these "fake cities." It travels from Paris to London to Venice - without leaving China. The inhabitants guide us into the parallel world where they have chosen to live. As VR leads the way to virtual tourism, copycat cities compete to offer a real experience of static travel.

Daughters of Chibok
2019 marks 5 years since 276 schoolgirls were kidnapped from their hostels in Chibok, a small town in Borno State, North-East Nigeria. More than 100 girls have been rescued by the government but 112 are still missing.
What happens to the mothers who watch each day's rising sun and midnight moon for a sign of their girls' return? In the first-ever VR documentary on the Chibok story, Daughters of Chibok gives a voice to the mothers to whom the memory of 14 April 2014 is like yesterday. The documentary, made by Joel 'Kachi Benson, focuses on their hopes and how they keep the pain at bay. Yana, one of the mothers and a woman leader, shows us how the women turn to the hard earth of Chibok to find purpose, and sustenance for their children.
