Virtual Reality (VR) has always seemed distant and unattainable. However, experiencing the effects of VR for the first time in the VR-documentary “VR Gostomel” expanded my perception of this world, opening the doors to an incredible realm of emotions and reality.
The “VR Gostomel” project is not just a film; it’s an immersive experience elevated to a new level through the use of virtual reality. Wearing a virtual headset for the first time, I became part of the history that left a mark in the hearts of every Gostomel resident.
The project allows viewers not only to follow the fate of the characters but also to personally feel the unpredictability of war and the struggle for survival. What makes “VR Gostomel” unique is its ability not only to perceive information but to experience it.
From the battle for the airport to the destruction of the symbol, the AN-225 “Mriya” aircraft, the film brings to consciousness the events that occurred in real-time. Detailed location reproduction and a realistic 360-degree overview provide an unparalleled visual effect that makes you feel as if you are truly there.
Director Valeriy Korshunov successfully combines modern technologies such as 3D scanning and drone filming to create impressive visual elements that help to sense the depth of events. His commentary on the importance of preserving the memory of the past is striking and leaves a profound impact on the viewer.
“VR Gostomel” is not just a documentary film; it’s a virtual bridge between the past and the present. For those immersing themselves in the world of virtual reality for the first time, this film not only opens the doors to a new experience but also demonstrates how strongly technology can influence our understanding of the past and shared history.
VR-documentary about Gostomel is an opportunity to transform the viewer into a witness of events that happened thousands of kilometers away but rewrote the history of the country. I recommend watching this film if you want to not only see but also feel the depth and significance of virtual reality.
“VR Gostomel” is a step into the future of cinema that can change your perspective on how we perceive the world.
The VR documentary film “VR Gostomel” is produced with the support of the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation and will be presented at film festivals, international conferences, and other events supporting Ukraine.
