Urban Enrichment Institute (with Writers In The Schools), Houston, Texas, USA

MY World 360° September 2018 Playlist selection

A video poem intended to immerse the audience in Fifth Ward (a super-neighborhood in Houston, TX), and challenge simplistic thinking about the area.

Sustainable Development Goals addressed: SDG #1: No Poverty, SDG #3: Good Health and Well-Being, SDG #4: Quality Education, SDG #9: Decent Work and Economic Growth, SDG #9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure.

Discussion Prompts

  • What makes Fifth Ward so special to the filmmakers?
  • What would you include in a 360º video about your own community that would challenge simplistic thinking about the place you live?

Watch Complex City on Facebook:


Or, watch Complex City on Vimeo.

There are several ways to experience 360° video, including through a VR headset, a VR viewer connected to a mobile device, a mobile device on its own, or through a web-based video player, as demonstrated above. See for more about 360° video and “like” the 360 Filmmakers Challenge Facebook page for more youth-produced 360 media.
