Peter Jordan got his start teaching children in remote parts of Africa to make their own films using plastic video cameras and a solar powered computer. He has since directed films for humanitarian organizations and global brands in more than 20 countries and reached hundreds of millions of viewers.
Peter’s collaborative film with survivors of genocide in Darfur, Sudan was awarded a Gold Medal from the United Nations. His work has appeared on PBS, in the New York Times, and before the United States Congress, and received many international prizes, including from the International Documentary Association. As a creative director at Facebook, Peter led work on artificial intelligence, solar-powered drones, and planetary internet access, in addition to directing the launch videos for some of Facebook's landmark features.
