Racing Extinction is a 2015 documentary about the ongoing Anthropogenic mass extinction of species (also called « The 6th Extinction ») and the efforts from scientists, activists and journalists to document it by Oscar-winning director Louie Psihoyos, who directed the documentary The Cove (2009). The film has received one Academy Award nomination and one Emmy nomination.
In this documentary, Louie Psihoyos (The Cove) has a team of artists and activists to explore the world of unknown endangered species. At the dawn of the sixth mass extinction that we know today and mostly caused by human activities, a race against time has begun. Traveling the world to infiltrate the most dangerous black markets of the world and using modern technology to uncover the link between carbon emissions and the extinction of species, this
film offers us new images that will change our way of perceiving the world.
The Film will begin around 20h.
