Scientists predict we may lose half the species on the planet by the end of the century. They believe we have entered the sixth major extinction event in Earth's history. Number five took out the dinosaurs. This era is called the Anthropocene, or 'Age of Man', because the evidence shows that humanity has sparked this catastrophic loss. We are the only ones who can stop it as well. The Oceanic Preservation Society, the group behind the Academy Award® winning film THE COVE, is back for "Racing Extinction". Along with some new innovators, OPS will bring a voice to the thousands of species on the very edge of life. An unlikely team of activists is out to expose the two worlds endangering species across the globe. The first threat to the wild comes from the international trade of wildlife. Bogus markets are being created at the expense of creatures who have survived on this planet for millions of years. The other threat is all around us, hiding in plain sight. There's a hidden world that ...Written by
Anohni was one of two nominees for Best Original Song at the 2016 Academy Awards, along with composer David Lang for 'Simple Song #3' performed by Sumi Jo from the film 'Youth', who were not invited to perform their song during the awards broadcast. Because of this, Anohni boycotted the event, explaining on her website that she recognized the reason for the snub was because she 'might not sell advertising space', and that it felt like 'a sting of shame that reminded me of America's earliest affirmations of my inadequacy as a transperson' and represented 'a system of social oppression and diminished opportunities for transpeople'.

I honestly cant remember when I last reviewed a movie / documentary, however, I fell in love with the message of this documentary. Its a story of whats happening to our planet. What we are doing to our own, our only home. A home we all share with other residents who have been turned into guests & slowly killed off one by one, by us.
Far more entertaining, saddening, thought provoking, guilt triggering & as if knowing our need / desire for a twist at the end, hope bringing & pasting a smile to our face at the end. The message is clear, we have been making mistakes, however, we still have time, together we all can bring a change, a change for happiness & place for every creature on this planet.
And to make the review a bit more personal, I want to share, how its affected me. I love bags, I actually love leather. As a geek, I really really care about my backpacks, shoulder bags etc. I actually have over 20 bags and keep on the lookout for expensive brands, unique designs etc. I have just deleted all the references / link to the sites. I have plenty, its time I used the damn bags, the twenty themselves will last me my lifetime.
Watch this movie, for your own knowledge, for the guests of this planet, for your children. Nevermind, just watch it for yourself.
