Left to right, Delores Wetter of South Paris, Colleen McCormick of Auburn and Winnie McMorrow of Mechanic Falls watch “A Shared Space: Lewiston” through virtual reality viewers during the Bates Film Festival at the college in Lewiston on Thursday. “Fabulously done. Heartwarming and a little heartbreaking,” Wetter said about her experience watching the film about two immigrants’ journey in Lewiston. “The Somali community is amazing,” McMorrow said after taking off her viewer. “They add so much to the city and state.” Thursday was the first experience watching a virtual reality film for Wetter, McCormick and McMorrow. The film festival continues through Sunday. Go to bates.edu/bff for more information. Daryn Slover/Sun Journal Buy this Photo
