Join us for an important movie for our time.

Have homo sapiens caused the greatest mass extinction since the KT event 66 million years ago, resulting from anthropogenic

Racing Extinction is a documentary about the ongoing Anthropogenic mass extinction of species and the efforts from scientists, activists and journalists to document it by Oscar-winning director Louie Psihoyos.

The film received an Oscar nomination and an Emmy nomination for Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking.

This special screening of Racing Extinction will be followed by expert commentary and Q & A with conservationist and tropical ecologist Dr. Rodolfo Dirzo, Stanford.
