WSJ. Magazine 2018 Technology Innovator: Nonny de la Peña, has transformed the way audiences feel the human impact of the news through her innovative use of virtual reality. Her media company, Emblematic Group, has created virtual representations that take viewers inside the crisis in Syria; the prisons of Guantanamo Bay; war torn Sudan; and a glacier in Greenland. Her work has premiered at countless film festivals, including SXSW, Tribeca Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival; and moved audiences in unique ways. Reflecting on the impact of her work, de la Peña says “I've really seen how deeply it was affecting people. They'd pull off the headset and they would be crying and they would be focusing on you. I knew that I could never put my audience out there any more, they had to be inside the story with me.”
