The Official Trailer For Tall As The Baobab Tree. By: Jeremy Teicher


Wide Open Camera helped produce this stunning film shot entirely in Africa with Canon DSLR’s and Carl Zeiss lenses by our very own Chris Collins. This will be our second feature production this year. Please help us in supporting this film any way you can. The oficial trailer for “Tall As The Baobab Tree” is out now. Here is a short Synopsis from director Jeremy Teicher.

“Coumba and her little sister Debo are the first to leave their family’s remote African village — where meals are prepared over open fires, water drawn from wells and baobab trees dominate the landscape — to attend school in the bustling city.

When an accident threatens the family’s survival, their father plans to sell Debo into an arranged marriage. Torn between deep-rooted traditions and her dreams for the future, Coumba hatches a secret plan to rescue Debo from a fate she did not choose.

Inspired by true stories and the first feature film in the Pulaar language, Tall as the Baobab Treepoignantly depicts a family struggling to find their footing at the edge of the modern world… where questions of right and wrong are not always black and white.

This the first full length feature directed by Jeremy Teicher, a finalist in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences 38th Annual Student Academy Awards.”
