On the night of September 19th, 1961, Barney and Betty Hill were the victims of the first widely publicized alien abduction in US history. In DINNER PARTY, The Hills, an interracial couple active in the civil-rights movement, were on their way home from a trip to Niagara Falls when they noticed an unusual light in the sky. Shaken by the erratic behavior of the UFO, they headed in the direction of the closest town but never made it.

DINNER PARTY was made possible through funding from the Engadget Alternate Realities grant program, established in May 2017. It will debut, along with four other prize-winning immersive-media projects, at the Engadget Experience on November 14th, 2017.

“(…) it’s more of a character piece, giving us a glimpse into how two people ended up with vastly different memories of a mysterious event.” (engadget.com)

“With the jarring exception of the tech, the entire setup had the feel of a Norman Rockwell painting.” (urbandaddy.com)

“(…) Dinner Party also acts for the pilot for a new series of VR shorts called The Incident, which charts true to life stories of strange occurrences and paranormal events.” (vrfocus.com)
