STUDIO 54 was the epicenter of 70s hedonism – a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolize an entire era. Its co-owners, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, two friends from Brooklyn, seemed to come out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society. Now, 39 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club’s hallowed threshold, Matt Tyrnauer’s thrilling documentary tells the real story behind the greatest club of all time.

Named among Forbe’s “most awesome” experiences at the Tribeca VR arcade, we’re excited to announce that MY AFRICA has been named finalist for the Best Film in the 360 Cinematic Video category at the AT&T Film Awards on June 2nd at Warner Bros. Studios. Narrated by the Academy Award-winning and Kenyan-raised actress Lupita Nyong’o, the film transports viewers to Kenya, where a community is re-knitting the bonds that have long enabled people and wildlife to live together. The film comes at a critical time for East Africa’s wildlife. Poaching, land degradation and climate change threaten the long-term viability of many of the region’s most iconic animals and strain the resources people need to survive. In MY AFRICA viewers glimpse a path forward: a place communities work for the long-term success of the species, and reap the benefits, including increased stability, opportunity, and improved livelihoods. Here, in Northern Kenya, is a new economy, one that allows people and nature to thrive together.
