After Solitary (VR)
When Kenny Moore was sent to prison at age 18, he expected to serve an 18-month sentence. But after a series of fights and disruptive behavior, he was sent to solitary confinement. Kenny would end up spending 20 years in prison, and more than five of those years in segregation.
In this walk-around VR experience, Moore recounts what his life was like on the inside — and how that experience has impacted his life now that he’s a free man.
FRONTLINE began covering solitary confinement inside the Maine State Prison three years ago for a documentary titled Last Days of Solitary, about the history of the practice in the U.S. and the reform movement currently gaining traction in several states.
The reporting led to the production of this visceral VR experience that places the viewer physically and emotionally inside an otherwise inaccessible world. After Solitary, produced by FRONTLINE and Emblematic Group, pushes the boundaries of immersive storytelling, while exploring what virtual reality can bring to journalism.
