The CLIMATE CRISIS FILM FESTIVAL presents a screening of RACING EXTINCTION (2016). In this fast-paced and exciting documentary, Oscar-winning director Louie Psihoyos (THE COVE) assembles a team of artists and activists intent on exposing the black market of endangered animals trading and the mass extinction it causes. Their idea is simple but impactful: projecting never-seen-before images on huge buildings all over the world to shock and move people in the street.

RACING EXTINCTION, together with TOMORROW (2015), is part of the CREATIVE SOLUTIONS double bill. Both films put forward bold ideas to make us rethink our lifestyles and use our creativity to respond positively to the doom-and-gloom of climate change.

***THE FILM:***

In RACING EXTINCTION, a team of artists and activists exposes the hidden world of extinction with powerful images that will change the way we see the planet.

Two forces drive extinction across the globe, potentially resulting in the loss of half of all species. The international wildlife trade creates bogus markets at the expense of creatures that have survived on this planet for millions of years. And the other surrounds us, hiding in plain sight — a world that the oil and gas companies don’t want the rest of us to see.

Using covert tactics and state-of-the-art technology, the RACING EXTINCTION team exposes these two worlds in an inspiring affirmation to preserve life as we know it.

“Everybody on our team has been able to adapt their talent to this bigger cause. It doesn’t matter who you are — everybody has the power to use their skills to solve this bigger issue.” — Louie Psihoyos

“A mesmeric entertainment and enlightenment, RACING EXTINCTION jolted a Sundance audience to ecstatic appreciation.”
— Hollywood Reporter
