In 2010, Academy Award-winning director Louie Psihoyos (The Cove) and the Oceanic Preservation Society team entered celebrated Santa Monica restaurant, The Hump, under the guise of typical diners. By the time they’d left, the restaurant had been busted for selling the meat of the endangered Sei whale. Using guerilla-style tactics, covert operations and state-of-the-art technology, Psihoyos and a team of artists and activists show the world never-before-seen images that expose the causes of the current mass extinction, and inspire us all to make changes to protect our world. Join the wild ride and leave with the tools necessary to save our endangered species.
Racing Extinction was an official selection of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
