Existing between the time lines of Divergent and Insurgent in the Divergent film series, this short film viewed in 360 degree places you in the chair as Jeanine and the head of her Erudite faction test your skills as a Divergent.
Spoiler: Strapped into the chair for testing, you are the hapless victim of Jeanine (Kate Winslet) and the Erudite faction (Patrick Cronen) hunt for more Divergents. By plunging you into nightmarish 'simulations' to test your responses, you the viewer get a front row seat into the world within the Divergent Series as you are tested high atop a crumbling building, coached by Max (Mekhi Phifer) and chided by Peter (Miles Teller)- all while Jeanine and the Erudites hunt down your fellow Divergents. Can you make it through? If you do, will you only be helping the enemy? Make your decisions wisely.
This short film was initially created as a virtual reality experience teasing the release of the second film in the Divergent Series franchise, Insurgent. Taking place between the story of the first and second films and serving as a bridge, Kite & Lightning's experience is being praised as the first representation of the future of feature filmmaking in a virtual reality environment.
