United Nations brings a dose of reality to Virtual Reality (VR) with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

This film is a VR experience that gives viewers the chance to ‘travel’ with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to witness the realities of humanitarian crises in the Middle East and Africa.

In 2016, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon traveled to more than ten countries in five months to draw global attention to the urgent needs of some 130 million people severely impacted by armed conflicts and natural disasters. A VR crew captured the journey and offers viewers a rare behind-the-scenes look at Ban’s visits to communities where people are suffering in some of the world’s worst humanitarian crises.

This is the first and only time the UN Secretary-General has been featured in a virtual reality film.
