Our world is globalizing and changing at an exponential rate giving rise to two starkly different yet powerful forces: acceptance and fear. Our society's inability to empathize and to deeply listen to one another on a fundamental human level is leading to misunderstanding and intolerance. It has created a polarization where both sides stare at one another, frustrated and unheard.
Love is the common fundamental human factor that touches all lives and it has the power to either unite or divide based on personal ideologies and expressions. It is here, in the realm of love and understanding, at the frontier of new forms of connection in which THE DIG lives.
Created as an intimate and interactive form of "walking in the shoes of another," THE DIG aims to create understanding and compassion for emerging human relationships through immersive storytelling and to tilt the world towards greater acceptance and understanding.
THE DIG was an official selection of IDFA 2016 and won 1st Prize for The World Press Photo's Immersive Storytelling.
