Experience the award-winning interactive virtual reality film Goliath: Playing With Reality, a visually dynamic exploration of living with psychosis. Using innovative animation, the film places the viewer inside the mind and reality of Goliath, a man living with schizophrenia. Through narration we learn Goliath’s story, his experiences of schizophrenia, time spent in psychiatric institutions and finding escape and community in the world of online gaming. Created by Anagram, and based on a true story, this virtual reality experience is a bold and inventive approach to representing experiences of mental health and illness.
