The Last Safari
About the Film
About the Director
When renowned photojournalist Elizabeth L. Gilbert returns to the Rift Valley in Africa to visit the tribes she photographed just a decade earlier, she bears witness to the changes wrought on the region. After her book is published, she hires a crew from Nairobi to assist her in screening a cinema slideshow to tribes-people, like the Masai, in their remote villages. But her ambitious safari is fraught with inclement weather, security issues, and self-doubt. Matt Goldman’s first feature captures the reunions, the dramas, and ultimately the triumph of this remarkable journey.
Director Matt Goldman launched his filmmaking career in 1999 when his award winning debut short film BROKE was exhibited in dozens of film festivals and licensed worldwide for television broadcast. Goldman’s second award winning short film, THE PERPETUAL LIFE OF JIM ALBERS, screened at Sundance, Resfest, Rotterdam, and dozens of other international film festivals. Goldman currently divides his time between Brooklyn and Kenya directing and editing documentaries, commercial spots, TV inserts, and music videos.
