The University of Plymouth Marine Biology Society are pleased to present Racing Extinction, a film by Louie Psihoyos.
In Racing Extinction, a team of artists and activists exposes the hidden world of extinction with never-before-seen images that will change the way we see the planet. Utilising state-of-the-art equipment, Oscar® winning film maker Louie Psihoyos (The Cove) and the team behind the film draws attention to mankind's role in a potential loss of at least half of the world's species.
This groundbreaking documentary brings a voice to the thousands of species teetering on the very edge of life. The documentary examines biodiversity loss, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a more sustainable future.
The special guest at this event is Jason Hall-Spencer, Professor of Marine Biology from the University's Faculty of Science and Engineering. Jason will be introducing the film and giving a short talk on his work that was involved and how he became a part of the documentary.
