For us, VR is more than technology, it’s an opportunity to create worlds that offer endless exploration and narrative experiences. It’s an opportunity for audiences to make an emotional connection through VR as a storytelling medium. Allumette is a virtual reality story about love, sacrifice and a deep bond between the young girl and her mother.
The movie chronicles the life of a young girl named Allumette, who lives in a fantastical city in the clouds. After enduring tragedy, she grasps at hope for her future.
