The Island of Shells is a 6-DoF interactive animation documentary based on Fred Him-San Chin’s testimony of Taiwan’s White Terror era. In 1971, CHIN, a Malaysian student, was wrongly charged with being a bombing suspect and a communist member and had been separated from his family for a decade since then. The experience is an adventurous folktale that tells a son’s journey of leaving and returning home in the form of shadow play, where the audience plays both the role of a puppeteer and a witness.
