Sorella’s Story is a 360 immersive film and hybrid dramatic recreation that was in competition at the Venice Film Festival in 2022. The film brings to life a smuggled atrocity photograph taken in Latvia in December 1941. In this immersive film, the audience follows 10-year-old Sorella on her final journey to the beach on the Baltic Sea where close to 4,000 people, mostly women and children, were murdered by Nazi collaborators.
