The community in Yawarani have set out to immortalize their culture in film and virtual reality to create documentaries to educate their youth, as well as broadcast their beautiful, sustainable lifestyle to the outside world. Throughout the creation of this piece, we hosted workshops in Yawarani to teach indigenous creators all stages of the VR and film production process, including the screenwriting, camera operation, scene design, post production and editing. The end result is a virtual reality film made by indigenous creators to preserve and share their culture.
