Going Live with "Looking for Life"

Last week, I was in Washington DC for the Pre-Departure Orientation of the next round of Fulbright-National Geographic Fellows. During my visit, I gave a presentation about my time in Botswana and the progress on LOOKING FOR LIFE, my short documentary.

In addition to speaking and showing images from my fellowship, I screened a two-minute teaser, the first public appearance of footage from the film. Today, I’m releasing that teaser online to celebrate our new Facebook page. Please like the page and share it with others!

LOOKING FOR LIFE is an intimate coming-of-age portrait of two young San men charting a course between tradition and modernity in the wake of relocation from their ancestral homeland in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve.

We have two more months of production, will continue postproduction through the fall, and hope to run the film festival circuit in the spring and fall of 2016. Facebook is the best place to receive updates about the film, including future screenings, so please follow us there.
