Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o and presented in stunning 360° VR, "My Africa" transports viewers to an elephant sanctuary in Kenya, where a community is reknitting the bonds that have long enabled people and wildlife to coexist.
"My Africa is a transporting film. The nine-minute video narrated by Lupita Nyong’o takes viewers inside the life of an elephant keeper in Kenya. The effects in this film range from cute (a baby elephant licking the camera) to terrifying (a wildebeest stampede right out of The Lion King). It’s education with a twist, which is one of VR’s big advantages."
"Stereoscopic 360 cinematography, striking in its dimensionality... a world so complete in its presence you feel a deep, moving empathy for the people and their struggle to live in harmony with nature."
