Night Becomes Day (2020) is a short form VR and regular 2D documentary produced by Reality Learning. The documentary celebrates the lives of refugees through the voice of teenager Sohail Haqyar.
In 2020, Sohail is just one of 79 million displaced people in the world. Having travelled with his parents, and three younger siblings from Afghanistan to Greece, teenage Sohail’s home is a refugee camp.
Inspired by Theo, a local human rights worker, Sohail joins other refugees, artist Nakam and war-injured Ali, to migrate from the camp and create a new form of citizenship in Athens – one not previously imagined by them. We intimately share their personal journey from night to day as they seek safety and rebuild their lives.
