    TERRA is an interactive film about the environment, presented in a platform through which the audience mixes in with the content by responding to a section of questions that are related to the topic. The film has other segments, among them a short intervention by a well-known Dominican biologist who relates his experience in caring for the environment. Two other important sections are: positive actions that people can put into practice to benefit the planet and a short 3D film to be shown permanently at the Museum of Industry in Paris. The short film looks at the worldwide situation of global warming and the environment.

    Biography of Director Juan Emilio Yanes:

    Juan Emilio Yanes, of US nationality, came to live in the Dominican Republic with his Cuban parents when he was 3-years-old. He is a Business Administrator by profession and, up to very recently, was the Manager of Sales in his family business.

    Juan Emilio, with a desire to combine a series of passions, decided to establish his own company, Ztadium Studios with the goal of creating shows and interactive films that add value to the film experience for the viewer by getting them involved and being part of the content.

    His first project is the expression of his love of nature mixed with a desire to produce material that will constitute a positive contribution to society. In doing so, he has taken into consideration an educational dynamic that achieves a sensibility on the topic of development. It is with this in mind that he created what is today called TERRA.
