Still Here: A story of incarceration and gentrification in the US

Friday, May 29, 2020

AJ Contrast, Al Jazeera's immersive storytelling and media innovation studio, wanted to explore the effect of incarceration and gentrification on women of colour in the US. The resulting immersive multimedia project called Still Here follows Jasmine Smith, a fictional character who returns home to Harlem, New York City after being incarcerated for 15 years. 

Still Here premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival and comprises three components - interactive VR, audio with AR and a photo gallery.
