During this VII Interactive Lecture, Ilvy guides us through the long and nuanced 12-year jour­ney that became her sig­na­ture project, Born Free — Mandela’s Generation of Hope, about South Africa’s post-apartheid gen­er­a­tion.

This lec­ture was orig­i­nal­ly host­ed at VII Interactive, a new resource for shar­ing insights and infor­ma­tion on the craft of visu­al sto­ry­telling. We are build­ing dif­fer­ent plat­forms with­in the VII ecosys­tem, where the pub­lic can engage direct­ly, online with a live instruc­tor. VII Interactive offers pro­gram­ming that is free and avail­able to every­one, in addi­tion to paid class­es and indi­vid­ual men­tor­ing that can be fash­ioned to your needs.
