Dir. Louie Psihoyos | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2015 | 90 min.

Oscar-winning director Louie Psihoyos (The Cove) unites with leading conservationists, artists, and innovators to address humanity’s devastating impact on the planet, particularly its oceans. Through a skillfully orchestrated undercover investigation, Psihoyos exposes the horrific black-market trade in endangered marine life. He also cleverly reveals the extent of the methane and carbon emissions that threaten over half of the planet’s species. Ultimately, Psihoyos and his collaborators create a large-scale work of art—a stunning multimedia presentation of images and statistics of the extinction crisis, projected on large buildings in major cities—which they hope will inspire a global awakening and collective action.
