On the Morning You Wake (to the End of the World)

Mike Brett, Arnaud Colinart & Steve Jamison / GB, FR, 2022 / 38 min.

1.6 million residents of Hawaii got the fright of their lives from an SMS message about a nuclear attack. Nothing happened. But everything changed. This VR, a mix of documentary and virtual production techniques, allows us to experience the terrifying 38 minutes the Hawaiians went through before they heard it was a false alarm.

What would you do if this message appeared on your telephone: "Emergency alert: BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL”? 1.6 million residents of Hawaii received a message with these very words on 13 January 2018.

In Eye 14 through 23 October.
