Ripples of Kindness

Directed by:
Ollie Lindsey
Country:
United Kingdom
Runtime: 00:16:00
Production Company: David Massey and Ellie Richold in collaboration with Hamed and Hessam Amiri

A story of brotherhood, love and positivity, this new communal virtual reality experience is inspired by the stories of Hussein Amiri and his family, who were forced to flee Afghanistan in 2000.

Created in collaboration with Hamed and Hessam Amiri to honour their brother’s incredible life, Ripples of Kindness invites small groups to share in the positive impact that Hussein had on everyone around him, from Afghanistan to Wales.

The experience is centred around the sofra – the living/dining space within the family home where the three brothers and their parents would meet, talk and exchange stories over food. The Amiris welcome you to join them at the sofra to (virtually) meet them and some of the people who came to their aid when they needed it most. Become immersed in an ever-changing virtual and sensory world which combines text, performance, animation and truly experience the Amiri family’s stories.
