A group of filmmakers at Crossover is pushing the boundaries of immersive documentary storytelling by incorporating technologies like facial recognition into a virtual reality experience. Mark Atkin, a director of Crossover, tells us about the projects and explains how this kind of work might change viewers’ minds and behaviors.

Reporting by Lindsey Miller, Rachel Wise and Jessica King.

More information about the film “Riot,” including links to additional media coverage of the project, can be found here.
