THE BOOK OF DISTANCE
Tribeca Virtual Arcade @ Cannes XR
Team: Randall Okita (Project Creator), David Oppenheim (Key Collaborator), National Film Board of Canada
Country of production: Canada
In 1935, Yonezo Okita left his home in Hiroshima, Japan, and began a new life in Canada. Then war and state-sanctioned racism changed everything—he became the enemy. Three generations later, his grandson, artist Randall Okita, leads us on an interactive virtual pilgrimage through an emotional geography of immigration and family.
