Reviews

“For anybody inclined to question the powerfully boundary-less capacities of VR to inspire and encourage empathy, inclusion, fellowship and transformation, GOLIATH might well be the original game changer. Beautiful, profoundly engaging and eventually resonantly simple, this work pushes the parameters of our understanding of the potential for the impact of gaming to provide a life-saving web of connection, support and joy for those who may be otherwise isolated and challenged by society. We emerge from its immersion into a reality with a kinder light and a brighter horizon.”
Tilda Swinton

“By turns gripping, sad, and poignant, it’s one of the great moving image attempts to understand mental illness from the inside out.”
IndieWire

“At a time when virtual reality fuels the fantasy of a metaverse that allows us to free ourselves from certain limitations of the physical world, Goliath uses this technology for the opposite purpose: to make us experience the struggle and suffering of many men and women in the grip of great psychological difficulties, very real and too often forgotten. (Translated from French)”
