Don't miss this special New York premiere of the exciting National Geographic/PBS documentary BONES OF TURKANA.  The movie follows world-famous anthropologist Richard Leakey and his team across an African landscape - and the filmmakers are there to capture the moment when they discovered the fossil clues that could finally reveal how we became human.  The film's soundtrack features new music by Paul Simon and the Kenyan Boys Choir.

Screening will be followed by a Q&A with Bones of Turkana's award-winning filmmakers.  Here's your chance to learn what goes into creating a great documentary, from choosing the topic and creating the story arc, to securing funding and finding distribution. 

John Heminway, explorer and filmmaker who has been documenting wild corners of our planet and astonishing audiences with his films.

Katie Carpenter, longtime producer and director of documentaries and television series about nature, travel, and the environment.
