Aftermath VR is an immersive documentary project about Euromaidan revolution in Kyiv, Ukraine.
On a grey morning of February 20, 2014, government police forces opened live ammunition fire against protesters armed with bats and wooden shields. Fifty people died, and several days after, President Viktor Yanukovych fled to Russia.
We reconstruct the street where the bloodshed happened, as it is today, using photogrammetry and CGI. The viewers of the experience would have a possibility to repeat the path of the protesters that were reclaiming the street from the police forces.
The story is a chronicle of that day with a strong emphasis on archival footage. Memories of the people who were there would be captured as 360° video interviews recorded in places they were that tragic morning.
Aftermath VR was one of the recipients of the Journalism 360 Challenge Grant
