LADY SAPIENS

A VR experience & 360° video directed by Camille Duvelleroy
Developed by Ubisoft, with images from the video game FarCry: Primal

You are LADY SAPIENS, you were born 38,000 years ago.

You are experiencing the place of women in the clan, but that’s not the end of the story.

No, women were not out picking while men were hunting. The director Camille Duvelleroy imagined a virtual reality experience based on the most recent scientific discoveries, evolving in a sumptuous graphic universe designed by UBISOFT.

LADY SAPIENS, THE EXPERIENCE offers a journey through time in the body of a Sapiens woman.

Plunged into the heart of an ancestral valley, you make the unforgettable encounter of a Palaeolithic huntress. She invites you to follow her and leads you to her clan. In a painted cave, she introduces you to a shaman woman, who familiarises you to cave painting. In the heart of the village, you are invited to a hut where you learn how to carve your own tool, a spear, which will later allow you to take part in a mammoth hunt…

Welcome to the Palaeolithic.
