The first animated movie drawn entirely within VR, “Dear Angelica” is a feast for the senses. It transports the viewer into the memories a girl has of her mother, embarking on an adventure as they face lions, dragons, and outer space. With mesmerizing colors and a breathtaking hand-painted style, this virtual reality experience recreates the memories we all carry of our own loved ones—memories that are simultaneously ethereal and tangible, full of both sadness and excitement. Enveloping the viewer within the relationship of this mother and daughter, “Dear Angelica” tells a deeply personal story of love and loss and is an impressive testament to how art and VR can celebrate remembrance while providing a space in which to process grief.
