Nothing But Nets

  • Nyarugusu Refugee Camp Nyarugusu Tanzania (map)
Today, we are thrilled to officially release our very first virtual reality film, titled “Under the Net.” The film is premiering at the Cinequest Film and VR Festival and it has been named Best VR Documentary. It is available on Discovery VR, Discovery Communications’ Webby- and Shorty-award winning virtual reality offering, which is available for download and viewing on iOS and AndroidSamsung Gear VR, and on Nothing But Nets YouTube using Google Cardboard.
The film features an 11-year-old girl named Amisa, a refugee living in the Nyarugusu Refugee Camp in Tanzania with her mother and six siblings. Struggling to survive each day, with no protection from mosquitoes that carry malaria at night, the viewer will experience Amisa’s life through her eyes. Hope abounds as her family moves into a new home, gets treatment for malaria, and she and her siblings prepare to start school– none of which is possible without the life-saving protection of bed nets.
