Droga5 New York created this “Amani” campaign which reflects Meta’s potential to bring people together.

Centerpiece of the campaign is this short film directed by Illimité World (French for “Limitless World”) which consists of two directors of color--Aus Taylor and Marleaux Desiré. “The world is y(ours)” is a mantra used by the native-Baltimore directorial duo, using it as a reminder that each artistic offering is a view into the world of their imaginations. The directors are adept at combining a mix of classical cinema, creative animation and raw documentary style filmmaking.

Turned out by production company Love Song, the “Amani” short tells the story of 12 young African cyclists who have come together to compete in the global cycling scene--shining a light on the next generation of cyclists to show how Meta’s future vision for shared, immersive experiences in the metaverse has the potential to break down barriers universally.

Love Song partner/director/EP Daniel Wolfe, who also exec produced Meta’s award-winning and Emmy-nominated film “Skate Nation Ghana,” served again as EP on the “Amani” film. A mentor to many young directors, he collaborated closely with Illimité World to capture the riders competing in the metaverse with a blend of both striking visuals and human depth.
