No one was more surprised than I when I picked up my Samsung Gear VR and found myself using it more to watch documentaries than play games. Games (horror titles in particular!) are great on it, don’t get me wrong, but the VR documentaries amazed me because of what I wasn’t expected- the level of empathy it made me have for their subjects. With the headset I took trips around the world and felt more connected to events than I ever would have without.
I wrote up a list of the 12 best docs I’ve seen so far for /Film, you can check it out here.
