Virtual Yagan VR

Synopsis

Virtual Yagan is an immersive virtual reality (VR) journey, time-travelling into the time of Yagan; an Aboriginal Noongar warrior who lived between 1795 and 1833 and resisted colonial settlement in the area surrounding what is now the city of Perth.

This documentary explores the pre-contact relationships of the Noongar people to land, ecology and identity before examining the dramatic changes and events set off by the moment of first contact.

Virtual Yagan immerses audiences in both pre-contact Noongar culture and a pre-settlement Western Australian landscape, using the latest advances in interactive storytelling technology.
