Racing Extinction is more than just another environmental documentary—it’s an urgent and action-packed call to action. Oscar®-winning documentarian Louie Psihoyos (The Cove, 2009) uses guerilla-style tactics to confront specific communities and black markets about their poor environmental practices, for instance stopping at an Indonesian fishing community and eventually convincing them to stop slaughtering manta rays, and using a carbon-dioxide detecting camera to show the statrtling amount of man-made emissions in downtown Los Angeles. Joining forces with activists, photographers, and scientists, Psihovos does an incredibly effective job at creating an emotional connection between the threatened species and the audience, and then bluntly laying out the disastrous consequences of thoughtless human activity, calling for a reassessment of how we engage with the world around us. This exceptional documentary dramatically brings to light the deadly impact humans have on more than half of the world’s species and the harsh realities of extinction.
