"Out of Africa" a story about migration and climate change that I worked on for the series, Years of Living Dangerously has just been released on YouTube. If you didn't get a chance to watch the series, take a look at this thirty minute segment, which features some camera work from yours truly. Thomas Friedman hosts as we travel to Paris, Niger and Senegal:
This trip was equal parts humbling and intense. We arrived in the middle of the Sahara Desert to 117 degree heat. Sweltering and almost impossible to work in. No amount of water was enough to stay hydrated. We traveled with a UN envoy and had a military escort because of the risk of kidnapping. We witnessed the mass migration that is happening in Africa as men travel north through the Sahara with hopes of reaching Europe. It was an incredible and transformative trip and I don't say that lightly. If you are interested, check it out!
