Is it just the pneumonia talking, or does this seem to be a strange time politically to cover this subject?

It could be strange or incredible timely. My question is if it's a VR film does that mean a first person sort of experience and we are the undocumented person going through obstacles or are we passive viewers?
Maybe it will be like Sicario's drug and immigrant tunnel sequence? That sequence features many different first person perspectives.

NYT bit about this film. In the works for four years apparently. Sounds very timely and relevant.

This is a landmark as it is the first VR experience to be awarded with an Oscar.

Here is one the Variety article about it:
