Two new films produced by Go Project Films, the film production team from our educational initiative Global Oneness Project, are now available to watch online.

Lost World
By Kalyanee Mam  

This film follows a young Cambodian woman, Phalla Vy, and her relationship to her homeland. Lost World documents the impact of sand dredging on the mangroves, the lives of the people who live in the forests, and the surrounding ecosystem. Filmmaker Kalyanee Mam writes, “Land was once considered the most secure and sacred ground we could stand on … Once it is mined and stripped from its home, it loses its luster. It becomes just sand, sterile and lifeless—without a home, without roots, without memory.”

The Atomic Tree
A virtual reality experience by Adam Loften and Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee  

What memories are held within the rings of a tree? The Atomic Tree is a journey into the memories of one of the most revered trees in the world—a 400-year-old Japanese white pine bonsai that witnessed, and survived, the atomic blast in Hiroshima. From Japan’s ancient cedar forests and Buddhist temples to the family home in Hiroshima where the pine was nurtured for five generations, this VR experience explores the unbroken chain of living stories held within the rings of this tree.
