One day he finds a wild kestrel that leads him through a journey of self-discovery.

The Week and Hugo Boss sponsored the evening, to benefit the American Film Institute (AFI). It is the latest in film series, co-founded by Katrina Pavlos and Vanessa Wingate of Indyssey Entertainment to celebrate the power of film to inspire.

Daniel and Rebecca personally chose Kes because it inspired their lives and work.

“When I was 11 and 12 years old, two films appeared which utterly changed my life,” Daniel said.  “In 1968, Lindsay Anderson’s If came out. In 1969 Kes came out. The film opened me up in a way that could never be taken away.”
