The Key

Non-profit: Friends of Refugees

Filmmaker: Celine Tricart

The Key is a room-scale virtual reality experience with a strong narrative structure punctuated by moments of choice. The participant is led through dream-like environments, facing challenges along the way and experiencing loss. Through this journey, a hidden truth is revealed as the participant realizes they've experienced the journey of a refugee who was forced to leave their homeland behind and create a new life in a foreign country. The Key was created in partnership with Friends of Refugees, a non-profit that empowers refugees through opportunities and helps them feel at home in a new community.


The Key premiered at Tribeca Film Festival ‘19 and won the prestigious Storyscapes jury award.
