“Wicked Jezebel Feminist! Users Witness Anti-Choice Abuse in Virtual Reality Film “Across the Line””

Democracy Now

Last week saw a series of anti-choice protests surrounding the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade. In Washington, D.C., protesters bearing photos of fetuses descended on the construction site for a new Planned Parenthood clinic. The protests forced the charter school next door to close for two days. A new project at the Sundance Film Festival puts you in the shoes of a woman passing through the gauntlet of anti-choice protesters to reach an abortion clinic. “Across the Line” is a seven-minute immersive virtual reality experience that uses real audio of anti-choice protesters. We speak with the project’s co-creator, Nonny de la Peña, known as the “godmother of virtual reality,” and with executive producer, Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America
