Talk: Racing Extinction

Louie's most recent film, "Racing Extinction", takes on the current mass extinction of species of our own making. Scientists predict we could lose up to half of all species by the end of the century due to habitat destruction, pollution, over-consumption and climate change. Racing Extinction follows a team of individuals that uncover this unseen extinction, but more importantly, come together with an innovative and inspiring approach to garner the world's attention and create solutions. The film is more than just a movie – it's a movement to call on everyone to #StartWith1Thing to curb this mass extinction and collectively overhaul how we impact the planet.
