Re-framing the world


Short film

Adrian Steirn and the Ginkgo Agency were invited by WWF to accompany actress Anna Friel and her daughter, Gracie, on a trip to visit the gorillas of Virunga National Park in Uganda. A photo essay and a five-minute short film documenting Anna and Gracie's experience served to highlight WWF’s international campaign to persuade the withdrawal of oil exploration in Virunga.

The photographs and short film reflect a mother and child deeply moved by their experience of Virunga, its people and its wildlife. Friel's candid close-up encounters with the gorillas, engaging conversations with those seeking to protect this Unesco World Heritage Site and her impassioned account of Uganda convey a compelling message that is impossible to ignore.
