Another Dream, a hybrid animated documentary and VR game, brings the gripping, true love story of an Egyptian lesbian couple to life.

Faced with a post-revolution backlash against the LGBTQ community, they escape Cairo to seek asylum and acceptance in the Netherlands.

An accompanying installation allows audiences to reflect on what they have seen, heard, and felt in VR.

Part of a Multi-Platform Project (Film, VR Experience, Web Interactive)

Another Dream is part of Queer in a Time of Forced Migration, an animated transmedia series that follows the stories of LGBTQ refugees from Egypt, Sudan, and Saudi Arabia across continents and cultures — from the 2011 Revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa region to the world today.

Another Dream is available to view now on Viveport.

How do you rebuild a life when you know you can never go home?

Virtual reality

Another Dream is a VR experience designed for two audience members to experience at a time. They must look at the characters in order to hear them begin their story of why they had to leave Egypt. Throughout the experience, a series of poetic phrases from their journey appears large-scale in Arabic. Audience members must trace these in order to move forward. At the end of the experience, each audience member sees a different ending. After the experience ends, they are given a written prompt to discuss what they have each seen and experienced in VR.

ANOTHER DREAM is part of QUEER IN A TIME OF FORCED MIGRATION, an award-winning, multi-platform project that follows the stories of LGBTQ refugees across continents and cultures—from 2011 Revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa region to the world today. Combining intimate, first-person audio accounts with visceral animation in a film (HALF A LIFE), VR experience (ANOTHER DREAM), and web interactive (THEY CALL ME ASYLUM SEEKER), it shares the experiences of queer people of colour from Egypt, Sudan, and Saudi Arabia firsthand. QUEER IN A TIME OF FORCED MIGRATION was recently on exhibit at the Amsterdam Museum and is available to tour to museums, galleries, and educational institutions worldwide.
