A virtual reality film will recreate the secret annex where Anne Frank and her family hid during the Nazi persecution.
Producer Jonah Hirsch and filmmaker Danny Abrahms are creating the new film “Anne”, which, through virtual reality technology, will recreate history and go back to the early 1940s, giving audiences the feel of being in the secret annex with Frank, reported the Entertainment Weekly.
“To experience this film will be to immerse oneself into a place and time, to move about a room, amongst the people, and sense the moment in a way never possible before (virtual reality),” Abrahms, who will write and direct the film, said.
Anne Frank is one of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Her diary, published as “The Diary of a Young Girl”, gives vivid description about their life in hiding during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II.
Frank’s diary, which chronicles her life from 12 June 1942 until 1 August 1944, has already been a subject of many films and plays.
She is believed to have died in a concentration camp at the age of 15 in 1945.
