Louie Psihoyos returns with Racing Extinction (PG), the gripping follow-up to his Oscar-winning documentary The Cove.
With The Cove, former National Geographic photographer turned film director Louie Psihoyos tackled the controversial issue of dolphin hunting with extraordinary, edge-of-your-seat results. In his new film, a Discovery Channel documentary, he widens his lens from ocean life to all life, crafting a thrilling, impassioned call to action for the future of the planet.
Helped out by scientists, environmental activists, nature photographers and technological innovators, and once again using covert filming techniques, Psihoyos broaches what he calls the most important problem the world has ever faced: the most epic loss of biodiversity since the dinosaurs died out. From illegal trade in wildlife to the carbon emissions threatening our way of life, Racing Extinction is an eye-opening big-screen spectacle as entertaining as it is inspiring.
Racing Extinction is rated PG and does contain scenes of animals in distress.
As a part of our Street Science! program science inspired films will be playing at our outdoor cinema, free for all the family.
