About the Director

Native Floridian Kristopher Brant has seen the rapid changes in the ecosystems of the Caribbean and the impacts they can bring. A marine biologist turned filmmaker, he joined NYU’s NewsDoc program to try and bring these two interests together. With Open Season, Kristopher hopes to not only shed light on a local issue but also cause people to think about the world and their place in it.
