This cross-platform interactive experience combines a smartphone app with VR. It utilizes a groundbreaking living narrative structure where the audience’s real-world actions impact the story as it unfolds. Innovative “swimming,” game play, elements of sci-fi, and mystery inspire users to reduce their carbon footprint in order to restore a magical lost civilization.


Experience The Lost City of Mer, March 23, 11am – 5pm, in the Carnegie Institution Ballroom and later that evening at the Closing Night Screening of Sharkwater Extinction.
