Cut Off

Canada is home to some of the most remote first nations communities in the world. Places that can seem cut off from the world. But full of people that want to be heard.

"I put the headset on with no idea what to expect, and then I was there, in Shoal Lake 40. I found myself looking for all the details, because I could in fact see everything in VR that I saw that day. It's a total trip to be fully immersed in that way." – Carson_Fox

Cut-Off VR is an immersive 360° documentary experience that places the viewer in the middle of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s historic visit to Shoal Lake 40, a First Nation in Canada without access to clean water. Viewers also visit Cross Lake, where a state of emergency was declared after a wave of youth suicides.
