Tribeca Film Festival

I will be premiering My Africa, the blue chip VR film I helped direct about the work being done in Northern Kenya at the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary at the Tribeca Film Festival Immersive Showcase April 20th-28th.
In Northern Kenya, the futures of wildlife and people are intertwined. Stand in the midst of a thundering wildebeest migration, witness a lioness snatch her prey—and meet a community dedicated to saving Africa’s wildlife in My Africa. The film allows you to experience Northern Kenya in 360 degrees and celebrate the relationship between wild animals that roam freely and the communities that protect them. I am proud to have helped direct My Africa with Passion Pictures, Vision 3 and Deep VR for Conservation International. The film is an official selection of the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival.
