The Peace & Justice Center presents “Racing Extinction” a 2015 documentary about the ongoing Anthropogenic mass extinction of species and the efforts from scientists, activists and journalists to document it. Produced by Oscar-winning director Louie Psihoyos, who directed the documentary The Cove (2009), 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. The film deals with several examples of the overarching theme of the Anthropocene Extinction, in that the spread of Homo sapiens has caused the greatest mass extinction in the history of the world, including global warming and poaching, and the efforts of scientists, photographers and volunteers to protect endangered species.
“Racing Extinction” shows Friday January 27, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at The Open Book (next to Sierra Mtn. Coffee Roasters) 671 Maltman Drive, Grass Valley. Come enjoy the film, and stay for the lively discussion to follow. $6.00-$10.00 suggested donation . Beverages and treats available for purchase.
