The stream will be showing a discussion and a viewing of Datuna: Portrait of America by Brian Bayerl and Michael Huter. A documentary film that “ties together parts of the larger discussion regarding the immigrant experience in the United States when an individual comes from a former Soviet-bloc nation and wants to contribute to American culture”.

    There will be speakers from academic world, from various embassies and from the United States Congress itseslf as they offer their own thoughts and debate the issues raised in the film. The livestream will take place from 7:30PM to 9:30 (EDT) and you can watch it here.

    Datuna: Portrait of America was previously voted best film of the London-based 2015 Raindance film festival. VRFocus will continue to bring you news and updates about VR and 360 degree technologies and where you can see them in action.
