In Racing Extinction, a team of artists and activists exposes the hidden world of extinction with never-before-seen images that will change the way we see the planet. Two worlds drive extinction across the globe, potentially resulting in the loss of half of all species. The world of international wildlife trade creates bogus markets at the expense of creatures that have survived on this planet for millions of years. And the other world surrounds us, hiding in plain sight — a world that the oil and gas companies don’t want the rest of us to see.

Oscar®-winning director Louie Psihoyos (THE COVE) assembles a team of artists and activists on an undercover operation to expose the hidden world of endangered species and the race to protect them against mass extinction. Spanning the globe to infiltrate the world’s most dangerous black markets and using high tech tactics to document the link between carbon emissions and species extinction, RACING EXTINCTION reveals stunning, never-before seen images that truly change the way we see the world.

Coffee/tea and snacks are included. A $5/person donation is suggested, but no one is turned away. All are welcome!
