One of my big regrets while making A Billion Lives was that we did not interview many smokers. Just like many people in the field of tobacco control, I was a non-smoker who tried to help smokers I didn’t understand.
I’m thankful for what happened with the A Billion Lives movement (thanks for joining it), but there is still so much work to be done. I was naive about how simple it would be to help the situation.
Today in front of a group of global philanthropists, entrepreneurs, and the media, we just had a private premiere of my new short film “Global Confusion” in Washington D.C.
This email is the public premiere. It is now free to the public:

Thanks to the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World, we were able to travel to 13 countries and speak with the actual people we’re trying to help.
It was eye opening.
In addition, I also shot a series of portraits around the world with those I interviewed. You can see my photography work and look at the ground-breaking new polling data that was released today in conjuction with our new film on SmokeFreeWorld.org
Let me know what you think!
