Joe Hunting is the first documentary filmmaker to work exclusively in Virtual Reality in the VR Chat ecosystem, capturing the early days of this new social media form that itself is not very keen on keeping its own records. In the Hidden Life of VR Chat programme, we follow him through a headset-enabled rabbit hole to a VR Wonderland where environments and avatars are virtual, but all interactions are real. Travelling across millions of user-generated worlds, Joe gets to know their inhabitants and delivers a documentary report of phenomena that many believe to be still in the realm of science fiction.
