Akram is only 15 years old but has already lost a friend. His neighbors were killed when an air raid by the Saudi-led coalition hit their house in the old city of Yemen’s capital, Sanaa. Yemen’s Skies of Terror, an immersive film by Contrast VR, provides a rare glimpse of life inside Yemen. Thousands of airstrikes have fallen on the country, and Akram’s story is only one of many. Follow Akram, 7-year-old Wedad, and 17-year-old Abu Bakr as they take you through three different years of airstrikes and show how their lives have been impacted.
Filmed by local journalists equipped with 360-degree cameras, the film fills the gap in today’s media narrative - the toll that the war in Yemen is taking on those who must live in constant fear of the skies.
