We’ve really loved screening “The Cove” by Louie Psihoyos around Greece – a tough film in all respects, but a real eye-opener to say the least. Having won him an Oscar, “The Cove” seems to have been a side-story the Greek-American director stumbled into while researching a much bigger issue. His new, and admittedly epic, film “Racing Extinction” documents how human beings are permanently altering the geology of the planet, the chemistry of the ocean and makeup of the atmosphere.
Using state-of-the-art equipment, the Psihoyos assembles a team of artists and activists intent on showing the world never-before-seen images that expose issues of endangered species and mass extinction. A cross between “Ocean’s Eleven” and an environmental spy thriller, “Racing Extinction” debuted at the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival in March 2016 in front of a stunned audience.
