In collaboration with KCET, UCLA faculty and students are developing immersive stories and documentary films that reach diverse audiences. In our pilot year (2017-2018), the project is focusing on California as a living lab for exploring the histories and horizons of urban planning, urban biodiversity, sustainable food and water, environmental equity, and multispecies justice.
Our UCLA team represents Anthropology; English; Environmental Science; Geography; and the School of Theater, Film and Television.
