Biidaaban: First Light

Rooted in the realm of Indigenous futurism, Biidaaban: First Light is an interactive VR time-jump into a highly realistic—and radically different—Toronto of tomorrow. As users explore this altered city now reclaimed by nature, they must think about their place in history and ultimately their role in the future.
This interactive virtual reality film directed by Lisa Jackson, 3D art by Mathew Borrett and produced by NFB, will be open for viewing from November 2nd to December 7th.
