In this remarkable interactive immersive documentary, media artist Oscar Raby puts the viewer in the footsteps of his father, who was an army officer on the day when the Caravan of Death came to his regiment. Both tender and horrifying, Assent is an experience of a father-son relationship as they struggle with the events and emotions of that fateful day.
