In Search of Tzotz (10 minutes)

Both species are very rare, very large, and very carnivorous.

Beneath the Canopy (6 minutes)
Members of the Tembé tribe, in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil work with explorer Topher White to use cell phones and a machine learning tool to combat illegal logging.

Outnumbered in Africa (8 minutes)
Sometimes beauty follows tragedy. Such is the case of what occurred after Cecil the Lion’s death. Most people know the story of Zimbabwe’s most famous lion and how he was illegally shot by an American dentist in 2015. The world reacted by donating over $1 million dollars. That money funded cutting edge research to better protect Cecil’s pack and his extended lion family. Few people know that much of that research was done by Moreangels Mbizah, a young Zimbabwean woman, Oxford University PhD candidate, and mother. Outnumbered in Africa follows Moreangel’s journey after Cecil’s death, revealing a deeper story of beauty and tragedy that receives far less attention in the world of African wildlife conservation.

Jane (90 minutes)
Produced from treasure house of footage from National Geographic’s archives, this film offers an intimate look at the life and work of the renowned primatology scientist, Jane Goodall, and her pioneering chimpanzee research in Tanzania.
