VR FILM / 2021 / 5 MINS
Moment and memory blend as you bear witness to a Samoan rite of passage. IOPU takes you behind the curtain of a resplendent theatre as you follow a queer Samoan-Australian performer who is about to take the stage. Through drama, dress and dance, this VR experience explores the themes of alienation, acceptance and finding our own tribe.
World Premiere: Melbourne International Film Festival (14 August 2021)
