NEW YORK (AP) — Kathryn Bigelow’s virtual-reality debut will premiere at next year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
Tribeca announced Thursday that Bigelow’s “The Protectors: Walk in the Ranger’s Shoes,” will be a part of its annual April festival. The 8-minute film, made with the National Geographic Channel, is about African rangers protecting elephants from ivory poachers.
In a statement, Bigelow urged the protection of “these magnificent and sentient creatures.”
Bigelow, the director of the Oscar-winning “The Hurt Locker,” last made 2012’s controversial “Zero Dark Thirty.” She is currently in post-production on an untitled feature about the 1967 riot in Detroit.
