Director Series continues with Racing Extinction

Posted September 8, 2022 at 9:55 am by

The Fri­day Har­bor Film Fes­ti­val shares news about their ongo­ing Direc­tor Series.

Rac­ing Extinc­tion, Fri­day Har­bor Film Festival’s next offer­ing in The Direc­tor Series, fol­lows under­cov­er activists try­ing to stave off a man-made mass extinc­tion. Sci­en­tists pre­dict that humanity’s foot­print on the plan­et may cause the loss of 50 per­cent of all species by the end of the cen­tu­ry. A team of artists and activists go 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. Direc­tor Louie Psi­hoyos has craft­ed an ambi­tious mis­sion to pull into focus our impact on the plan­et, while inspir­ing us all to embrace the solu­tions that will ensure a thriv­ing, bio­di­verse world for future generations.

Fol­low­ing a free online show­ing tonight from 6:30 to 9 p.m., stream the film on demand from Sept. 9–21 for $1.95.
