WE OFTEN HEAR STORIES
ABOUT EXPLOITED FACTORY
WORKERS IN CHINA.
BUT USUALLY, THEY ARE
Meet Xiaowu, a factory worker making Apple products in Shenzhen, China. MADE: meet at the end of the assembly line is an immersive Virtual Reality (VR) documentary connecting everyday consumers to the factory workers who assemble the products they know and love. In this choose-your-own-adventure journey, you develop a relationship with Xiaowu. No longer backseat observers, you plunge into Xiaowu’s life, learning about her family, work, and inner thoughts.
MADE seeks to push the boundaries of storytelling by incorporating elements of interactivity, game play and immersion through VR in order to create a sense of intimacy between you as a consumer and the factory workers who assemble your products. By asking a series of questions, we create a unique profile for each user as we lead them on a personalized narrative journey with Xiao Wu.
MADE VR premiered in Hong Kong at Eaton House in December 2020 and had its international premiere at the Game for Change Festival in New York City in July 2022.
This project highlights the humanity of migrant factory workers and empowers our viewers to make better consumer choices.
MADE consists of a diverse global team of creators, educators, and radical thinkers. As a team, our hope is to humanize factory workers, advocate for a more equitable supply chain and join the global movement for living wage.
