Following the Academy-Award success of The Cove (2009), the Oceanic Preservation Society and National Geographic photographer Louie Psihoyos tackle an even bigger environmental problem: biodiversity loss. Racing Extinction addresses human impact on animal species world-wide. Featuring race car driver, Leilani Munter in a Tesla and undercover operations to expose illegal sales of marine animals, Racing Extinction pumps adrenaline while simultaneously delivering a hopeful advocacy message. This screening is sponsored by the Center for Documentary Research and Practice, Integrated Program in the Environment, Cinema and Media Studies, and the departments of Religious Studies and History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine.
