One Man's mission to stop the killing of children in the Omo Valley
It's incredible to think that the year is already more then half over! What an amazing 7 months it's been for Omo Child: The River and the Bush.

Most have been in the United States but we are very proud to have made our International Premiere in April at the 2015 HotDocs Festival in Toronto and even more proud to have received the "Top Ten Audience Award". We will be in Europe and other international locations soon so please stay tuned for more on that. We have won 9 awards from Best Documentary, Best Cinematograph

We are really looking forward to attending as the whole crew can be in attendance. Should be a great day, hope you can join us.

We are really proud to announce that we won the Audience Choice Award at Mammoth Lakes Film Festival! There is something very special about winning the Audience Award at any festival but we are really honored to win here as the competition was really tough. Shira Dubrovner and Paul Sbrizzi put together an impressive line up of films and we were honored to take part. To come away with the Audience Choice for Best Doc when you are going up against films like Cartel Land, The Chinese Mayor, and Steve Jobs: The Man and the Machine is quite special. What a great festival, we enjoyed it so m
