Amnesty International has teamed up with Al-Jazeera to produce a virtual reality documentary to shine a spotlight on the escalating Rohingya refugee crisis in Myanmar.
The documentary, “I Am Rohingya,” is the first to be produced by Contrast VR, Al Jazeera’s immersive media studio and tells the story of Jamalida Begum, a Rohingya Muslim, and her two children living in the slums of the Kutupalong refugee camps in Bangladesh.
Jamalida is one of the thousands who have fled Myanmar to escape the atrocities faced by Rohingya Muslims and are seeking refuge in Bangladesh because they are unable to return to their homes.
