The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences
Congratulations to Franco for being nominated for editing Ben Steele’s Orphans of Ebola. Franco was lucky enough to attend the event in New York.
Ben Steele’s Orphans of Ebola follows Abu, a 12-year-old boy from a Sierra Leone village, who loses eight members of his family and must restart his life elsewhere. Filmed over a period of four months, beginning just after the height of the epidemic in December 2014 through the reopening of the country’s schools in April 2015, Abu’s story illustrates the incredible bravery of the thousands of children who have been orphaned by Ebola as they reconcile with the past and forge new lives. Orphans of Ebola was filmed, written and directed by Ben Steele; executive producers, Karen Edwards and Fiona Stourton. For HBO: senior producer, Nancy Abraham; executive producer, Sheila Nevins.
