About this project

After awarding the acclaimed Jazz for Peace Empowerment Grant to the Empaash Oloorienito Conservancy Trust in the Mara region of Kenya, Africa; World Renowned Jazz Artist  Rick DellaRatta learned first hand of problems there that can permanently effect our entire worlds ecosystem, and was asked by everyone from the Prime Minister of Kenya to the Kenya Wildlife Service to the culturally rich and indigenous Maasai people themselves to create as much awareness as possible upon his return to the US.

He has decided to keep his promise by making this fascinatingly informative, educational, artistic yet also entertaining film.

As a result of this promise we are making a documentary about the Maasai Mara of Kenya, Africa. The objective of this documentary is to educate people about this amazing region of Africa and how its sustainability and success or failure can have an impact on the rest of the world. Via footage that we have taken from our two concerts trips there over the past year along with interviews and information we have gathered, we can now offer an insight into the land, the culture, the wildlife and the people while at the same time expose as well as educate viewers about the problems and possible solutions to saving "One of the Seven Great Wonders of the World".

Funds will be used for production costs and to assemble the footage into a complete full length documentary which fully achieves the above goals. Should we exceed our funding goal we will be able to EXCEED these goals already listed with further interviews, footage and additional production costs that we had not budgeted as well as obtain the promotion and distribution to enable this movie to reach the worldwide audience that it deserves.
