Filmmakers of The Cove bring you the latest environmental exposé.
Racing Extinction (Louie Psihoyos | USA | 90 min.)
Armed with a state-of-the-art cameras, and profound purpose, the Academy Award® Winning Filmmakers of The Cove, bring you the latest environmental exposé. Follow a team of artists and activists that employ their unique skills and talents to expose the hidden world of extinction with never-before-seen images that will change the way we see the planet. Photographers, divers, and undercover agents reveal the two worlds that drive extinction across the globe, potentially resulting in the loss of half of all species; the international wildlife trade, and the other surrounds us, hiding in plain sight — a world that the oil and gas companies don’t want the rest of us to see. Using state-of-the-art technology, the Racing Extinction team exposes these two worlds in an inspiring affirmation to preserve life as we know it. Presented in partnership with Discovery Channel and Arts Brookfield.
RACING EXTINCTION will be seen in its entirety as a worldwide broadcast on Discovery Channel in 220 countries and territories on the same day at the end of the year. Visit www.racingextinction.com for broadcast dates and more information.
Bird Courage is made up of Erik Meier and Samuel Saffery who began playing together after a succession of encounters in unconventional rehearsal and performance spaces. They make gently romantic, nature-influenced folk, with a minimalist, ambient sensibility and an acoustic levity. Their debut EP ‘A Promising Flee’ was released in 2012, followed by LP ‘Maia Manu’ in 2013.
