An Taisce are hosting a free screening of the Academy Award nominated documentary ‘Racing Extinction (2015)’. The screening is part of a series of biodiversity themed events which are happening across the country during Biodiversity Week 2016. Free catering will also be provided.
Scientists predict we may lose half the species on the planet by the end of the century. They believe we have entered the sixth major extinction event in Earth’s history. Number five took out the dinosaurs. This era is called the Anthropocene, or ‘Age of Man’, because the evidence shows that humanity has sparked this catastrophic loss. We are the only ones who can stop it as well. The documentary follows a team of undercover activists trying to do their best to prevent the extinction of species and highlight the ongoing man-made mass extinction and its main drivers.
The film comes from the makers of the ‘The Cove’ and was nominated for awards at both the Academy Awards and the Sundance Fim Festival 2015.
IMDb rating 8.2/10
