VR Film Identity is based on the concept of personal wholeness and exploring the issue of disunity within ourselves. The 360° experience aims to conceptually place the viewer at the dizzying peak of the hypothetical "self", that is considered as a module of an internal society; containing collisions, dominant positions, balance and chaos . The core of film narration is the intention to establish a self-dialogue within ourselves, and as a result with external society.
The storytelling is based on cross lines between the autobiography of the performer Sacha Eusebe and the novel by Anaïs Nin The Diary, Vol. 1 : "I have always been tormented by the image of multiplicity of selves. Some days I call it richness, and other days I see it as a disease [...]. My first concept about people around me was that all of them were coordinated into a whole, whereas I was made up of a multitude of selves, of fragments".
