Imagine a downloaded book that comes alive with audio, photos and video.

Made specially to be seen online, City of the Blind is an emotionally complex and intellectually provocative drama that follows U.N. investigator and whistleblower Cassie Al-Khatib caught in a web of surveillance, violence, and counter-intelligence. The piece is based on research into shocking real-life abuse committed by U.N. peacekeepers.

Throughout six thirty-minute-long chapters you access secret files to hear Cassie’s voicemail, intercept her emails, and watch CCTV in this innovative new format that combines video, audio and more all in one place. City of the Blind is groundbreaking drama for small-scale technology.
