Description: Kiya is a five-minute virtual reality piece telling the story of two sisters valiant but unsuccessful efforts to try to rescue their third sister, Kiya, from a deadly attack by her ex-boyfriend. Using two separate recorded calls to emergency workers, the experience puts the viewer on the scene as the tragic events unfold. With three women killed every day by their intimate partners in the United States, Kiya is ultimately a call to action: this should never happen to anyone’s sister again.

Review: I’m not sure who might ‘enjoy’ or even need this sort of app, but if you or someone you know is affected by domestic violence I would suggest getting help not using this experience. While greatly it is poor quality it does at least immerse you in the danger of the situation that thousands of people face every day. I’m just not sure I want my face filled with it unless it is something I am going to learn from. Maybe I am missing the point of this, but personally, I couldn’t find one.
