Nattens Ende / End of Night VR
1943. You are sitting in a boat with Josef. He is rowing from occupied Denmark to safety in neutral Sweden. As the boat crosses the ocean, the sea gives way to the streets and people that populate his mind. Your journey together becomes a living landscape of painful recollections from the night of his escape. As dawn draws near, you will witness the trauma of escape and the guilt of surviving – when those you love are left behind.
"End of Night" is a cinematic VR experience about the tormenting memories of one man's escape from Denmark to Sweden during WWII.
Placed in the passenger seat of a rowboat, the audience is face to face with our narrator, Josef, who begins to tell his story. As your boat crosses the ocean, the sea gives way to the streets and people that populate his memory - and the story of how Josef struggled to escape the Germans with his family unfolds before both your eyes. As dawn draws near, the audience will witness first hand the trauma of escape and the guilt of surviving – when those you love are left behind.
