The Choice: A VR Experience for Creating Real-World Impact by Joanne Popinska
The Choice is an interactive virtual reality series where women tell their stories—many for the first time—about choosing to have an abortion. In these powerful first-person testimonials, women share the complex emotions, inner dialogues, and events—visualized through delicate animation—that led to their decision. Virtual reality creates an intimate, personal encounter where viewers feel engaged in a conversation—rather than a debate.

In the first episode, viewers meet Kristen, a young Native American woman from Austin, Texas, who dreams of raising a family but instead finds herself facing a painful and dehumanizing system. It becomes clear that the title of The Choice has a double meaning: it is about the actual choice that women make, but also how freedom of choice is often denied.

This VR experience utilizes the unique psychological impacts of VR to create a strong and lasting bond between the audience and the storyteller. Participants are not merely watching Kristen’s story; they are joining in on the conversation by asking her questions. Moreover, the VR headset immerses the participant in a quiet space with Kristen, placing her virtually five feet in front of the participant, creating a sense of personal connection that goes beyond debate.

By creating an intimate and personal encounter between viewers and storytellers, The Choice offers a new approach to discussing abortion that shifts attitudes and behaviors. In her presentation, Joanne Popinska, the director, will share the process of creating this impactful piece with the goal of creating a real-world impact.

If you haven’t had a chance to watch The Choice yet and would like to, you can get in touch with Joanne Popinska for applab codes.
