Beyond the Map takes you deep into the colorful favelas of Rio de Janeiro in an innovative, choose-your-own-adventure-style experience. Produced in partnership with Google, this documentary series, much of which is shot in VR, gives viewers a glimpse of the rich, complex lives in these oft overlooked neighborhoods. The journey begins with a 360-degree motorcycle ride and culminates in vibrant performances from up-and-coming musicians and artists. Along the way, viewers are immersed in the stories of extraordinary individuals whose grit, creativity, and indomitable spirit are the lifeblood of the favelas.


This character-driven series of short films follows eight of the teams of eccentric space enthusiasts and their quest for the XPRIZE, which offers a purse of $30 million to the first group to put a robot on the moon. The prize is part of the new civilian space race, a competition that prompts entrepreneurs to dream up affordable ways to reach the Moon and inspire future scientists, engineers, explorers, and unconventional amateurs. Each MOON SHOT segment features a team and its story: the lives of their idiosyncratic members, their strategies and sacrifices, and what inspired them to take on this challenge.
