The Last Goodbye (film)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki








The Last Goodbye is a 2017 virtual reality film that follows Holocaust survivor Pinchas Gutter’s final return to Majdanek concentration camp, where his parents and twin sister were murdered. It was created by Gabo Arora and Ari Palitz in partnership with Here Be Dragons, MPC VR, and OTOY Inc. The fully immersive experience enables visitors to virtually walk with Gutter as he travels in life-sized projections of the camp, including the railway car, gas chamber, shower room, and barracks of Majdanek. It is a 16 minute immersive virtual reality testimony produced by the USC Shoah Foundation.[1] [2] [3]

The film was directed by Gabo Arora and Ari Palitz and co-produced by Stephen D. Smith, Tim Dillon, Jonathan Dotan, Patrick Milling-Smith, Samantha Storr, and Chris Milk.[4] [5] In late 2016, the team traveled with Gutter to Poland to capture hours of 3D video and tens of thousands of photos on site.

It was first shown at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival[6] and had its international premiere at the 2017 Venice Film Festival[7]

The film won the Creative Arts Award, VR – Documentary Jury Prize at the 2018 Lumiere Awards. It also won for Best Branded 360 Video and a People's Voice award for Best Narrative Experience in the online film and video category at the 2018 Webby Awards.[8]
