The Enemy is always invisible. When he becomes visible, he ceases to be the Enemy. For the first time, in augmented-reality, a new documentary gives users the opportunity to meet soldiers from opposite sides of the same conflict. Each fighter offers personal perspectives on war, in their own words, discussing their motivations for fighting and what their future might look like.

One of the first apps to take full advantage of the new ARKit framework for iOS11, The Enemy takes you to a whole new level of AR experiencean unforgettably real encounter. Blending digital representation of real-life fighters in 3D from information with the environment around you, ARKit allows them to interact with the real world as never before.

This technology, combined with the work of war photographer Karim Ben Khelifa, offers you the chance to meet these soldiers and hear their stories, wherever you are. And what they have to say might change the way you look at wars.

Using your smart phone, youll hear both sides of three momentous conflicts: the wars in El Salvador and the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Use the app in an area where you have some room to maneuver, and get up close with each soldier. Youll feel his presence as he maintains eye contact and shares his version of events, offering a rarely heard perspective on violence and war. If you turn 180 degrees while hes speaking, youll see his enemy standing right there, patiently waiting to tell his side of the story.

The app, together with the travelling VR installation of the same name, proves that you don't need to be living in a war zone to be affected by the conflict.

This experience is meant to be shared. The more we make the project known, the more we can fill in the gap that separates us from the other. Karim Ben Khelifa
