“Waves of Grace”, a story told in Virtual Reality about Ebola survival and recovery in Liberia

Leading virtual reality production company Vrse.works is unveiling its latest film in collaboration with the UN Millennium Campaign and Vice Media. Waves of Grace follows a young Liberian woman’s struggle to thrive during and after the recent Ebola epidemic.

Waves of Grace calls attention to the formidable obstacles that Ebola survivors still face, despite having survived and recovered from the disease.  The film transports viewers to West Point, the most populous slum in the capital of Liberia, and follows the experience of Decontee Davis, an Ebola survivor who uses her immunity to help others affected by the disease.  The film was created by Chris Milk with UN collaborator Gabo Arora, and produced by Patrick Milling Smith and Samantha Storr.  It is part of a larger initiative of the UN Millennium Campaign to fight donor fatigue on the world’s most pressing challenges.
