Educators, don't miss this opportunity to bring your students to a special showing for school groups.

Experience an epic African wildlife park through the eyes of an Emmy Award-winning natural history cinematographer. A childhood in East Africa gave Emmy Award-winning cinematographer Bob Poole a fierce curiosity about the natural world as well as an adventurous spirit. For a six-part PBS/NatGeo International series, Bob drew on that experience to document the rebirth of a lost Eden: Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park, a jewel of Africa’s parks system until civil war almost destroyed it. 

There, he joined forces with rangers and scientists (including his sister, renowned elephant researcher Joyce Poole), on perhaps the biggest conservation project on the planet. He’ll share secrets of filming lions, crocs, elephants, and spectacular scenery, and tell how he cracked the“Gorongosacode”—learning to read the landscape and find prime locations for filming the park’s spectacular wildlife.

Join the acclaimed cinematographer and filmmaker for unforgettable images and stories of Gorongosa’s majestic animals—and learn how the wild places we’ve broken can be put back together

After his presentation at McGlohon Theater, venture over to Discovery Place Science for hands-on educational programming.

Daytime shows are available at a discounted rate for school groups only. For details and booking school shows, call 704.372.6261 x300.
