RACING EXTINCTION
2015, The Film Collaborative, 90 min, USA, Dir: Louie Psihoyos

Director Louie Psihoyos’ follow-up to Oscar winner THE COVE is an equally urgent look at environmental crisis. With pressure mounting on endangered species from the illegal wildlife trade and greenhouse gas emissions, we may be on the brink of another mass extinction. Using state-of-the-art equipment, a team of artists and activists capture never-before-seen images that illustrate the extent of the problem and point toward solutions. “If a documentary can be both alarming and oddly reassuring, it's the gripping splash of cold cinematic water RACING EXTINCTION.” - Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News.
