“Our artistic endeavor was to explore how the physical traumas of sickness and violence damage the mind through the body, and how touching cares for the mind despite its inability to explicitly heal the body. Our shared fascination with the technology and its abilities led us to the conception of this interactive VR journey: one where no progress is possible unless the viewer chooses to make a physical connection with another human being accompanying them in this experience.”
“Normal Day” is a virtual reality documentary, directed by Natasha Babenko and Ayushman Pandey. The film accompanies a ballet dancer through her journey of fighting cancer. It was a pleasure to work with such passionate directors.
The film was screened at many festivals and won several awards, such as “Best VR-Film” at Global Film Festival Award and Calcutta International Festival.
