Doc Soup Calgary Presents: RACING EXTINCTION
The Calgary International Film Festival and the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival are pleased to announce that the environmental documentary RACING EXTINCTION will be the first film in the 2015-16 Doc Soup Series.
Join us at Cineplex Eau Claire on Wednesday November 4 at 7 p.m. as we kick-off another season of the most anticipated and acclaimed documentaries.
RACING EXTINCTION is the second film by Director Louie Psihoyos and the Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS), the filmmaking team behind the 2009 Academy Award® winning documentary THE COVE. An exploration of endangered species and the seemingly imminent mass extinction many of them are facing, RACING EXTINCTION uses powerful visuals and undercover filming techniques to expose the illegal animal trade and the urgency of taking action against climate change.
Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, RACING EXTINCTION is also opening Toronto’s 2015-16 Doc Soup season.
