Terminal 3 is an interactive, augmented-reality documentary that explores contemporary Muslim identities in the U.S. through the lens of an airport interrogation.
MAKING OF TERMINAL 3
As viewers put on the Hololens, they step into the uncanny to directly interrogate, and determine the fate of, the hologram passenger before them.
These interrogations become strikingly personal encounters that only end when the participant decides if the hologram should be let into the country – or not.
Terminal 3 premiered at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival to wide critical acclaim and put 1RIC on the map as an Augmented Reality studio successfully using the mediums unique potential to tell a story.
"They take you into a room and you sit at a table. A sign on the wall says “U.S. Customs Facility Secondary Screening,” and alerts you that the room is under 24-hour surveillance. But you’re not being questioned. In this room, you’re in the position of power.
Then, you put on a Hololens mixed-reality headset and meet Ayesha, a hologram that sits on a stool on the other side of the room. The barely visible screen in front of your eyes prompts you to ask her one of two questions. Where were you born? Los Angeles, she says. Who were you visiting in Pakistan? Family and friends, she responds."
