SHOOTING IN THE WILD (USA, 2013, 57 min.)

An Evening With CHRIS PALMER, Founder and Director, Center for Environmental Filmmaking, American University.

World Premiere Veteran wildlife film producer Chris Palmer’s controversial book, “Shooting in the Wild: An Insider’s Account of Making Movies in the Animal Kingdom,” has been widely praised.  Now it has been turned into an insightful film for public television. Hosted by National Geographic emerging explorer and filmmaker Alexandra Cousteau, the film takes a behind-the-scenes peek into the world of natural history filmmaking and shows the reality behind the lens. The film reveals industry secrets for getting the perfect shot while discussing the pervasive and troubling trend toward sensationalism, extreme risk-taking and even animal abuse. Directed by Ed Beimfohr. Produced by Frank Fitzmaurice and  by American University School of Communication in association with Maryland Public Television. 

Introduction and post-screening discussion with filmmaker and author Chris Palmer. He will also screen the winners of this year’s Eco-Comedy Video Competition, sponsored by A.U.’s Center for Environmental Filmmaking and the Sierra Club.

Reception at 6:30 p.m.
