Racing Extinction – October 20

The Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS), the group behind the Academy Award®-winning film “The Cove,” is back with “Racing Extinction.” 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.

“Racing Extinction” premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and we are excited to screen this documentary at Chautauqua! Film producer Olivia Ahnemann will lead a post-screening discussion.
Watch the official trailer here. Thursday, October 20. 7:00 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.
