A childhood in East Africa gave Emmy Award-winning cinematographer Bob Poole a fierce curiosity about the natural world as well as an adventurous spirit. For a six-part PBS/Nat Geo International series, Bob drew on that experience to document the rebirth of a lost Eden: Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park, a jewel of Africa’s parks system until civil war almost destroyed it. There, he joined forces with rangers and scientists (including his sister, renowned elephant researcher Joyce Poole), on perhaps the biggest conservation project on the planet—and learned that the wild places we’ve broken can be put back together.
This award-winning filmmaker will take us behind-the-scenes of his work, on the front lines of environmental conservation.

Park City InstitutePark City Institute (formerly Park City Performing Arts Foundation) is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to bringing world-class performances and innovative ideas to the community we serve. Founded in 1998, PCI introduces emerging artists, welcomes celebrated musicians, produces award winning theater and creates intimate opportunities for Park City to experience and engage with the world’s most creative, inspiring, thoughtful and provocative minds. We currently produce two seasons worth of programming - summer’s St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights concert series and the fall/winter Main Stage series at the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Center for the Performing Arts – in addition to more intimate events such as our Curiosities Dinners, workshops and retreats. DONATE As an intentionally lean organization committed to investing the majority of our annual budget directly into the talent we invite to our stages, PCI relies on the continued support of our sponsors, donors, members and patrons. Because of their generosity and shared belief that arts and culture are the backbone of any strong community, PCI is able to ensure equitable access to all its programming by way of free tickets for Park City’s underserved. PCI champions education by creating experiential classroom learning opportunities through which Park City School District students directly engage, collaborate and create with the speakers, musicians and performers we host.435-655-3114 firstname.lastname@example.org
