The Interview

26th TIDF: International Premiere

The Interview uses VR to put you in the role of a caseworker in an immigration office. You will interview asylum seekers. At the end of each interview, it is your job to decide who can stay and who should be asked to return to his/her country of origin. How easy is it to make that decision when the person is sitting in front of you?
