Indirect Actions is a fully immersive, investigative documentary centered around a young social justice warrior who joins the front line of a protest to document a national crisis in North Dakota. But in the midst of the protest, she discovers that her personal fight for equality may be putting in jeopardy the very people she came to protect.
With a new level of transparency that immersive media provides, the film examines and critiques performative protest, the use of social media as a tool to spread awareness for these social justice issues, and the efficacy of these tactics to create positive sustainable change in local communities.
The film explores this urgent issue currently in the zeitgeist of modern-day politics and is slated to be the first feature exhibited in Fulldome format worldwide.
“Someday, in the not too distant future you’ll be able to go to a movie and the movie will be all around you.
The movie will be over your head, it will be 360 degrees around you.”
~ Steven Spielberg
TIME Magazine, 2006
More than a decade ago, Steven Spielberg predicted an evolution in entertainment and on October 23rd, 2019 this vision will finally become a reality.
The world’s first immersive documentary feature, Indirect Actions, opened the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival Dome Film Series, at Wisdome Los Angeles, an immersive entertainment venue in the heart of Los Angeles’ Arts district.
Using the dome as a theatre creates a powerful medium for first-person storytelling. Rather than being confined to a VR HMD, viewers can experience the immersion together, without having to wear a headset.
The fact 'Indirect Actions' is the first-ever feature-length documentary made for fulldome viewing makes it appealing and noteworthy. The fact the technology wasn't the main focus of the film but rather a well-used storytelling tool helps make it the compelling, important film it is.
