The Next Mass Extinction is Here

In this ground-breaking film a team of artists and activists exposes the hidden world of extinction in never-before-seen images that will change the way you view the world.

The Earth has gone through five major extinctions. During the fifth, an asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs. The 6th major extinction event is happening right now. Scientists predict we will lose half of all species on the planet by the end of the century. This time, we are the asteroid.

Two worlds threaten species across the globe. The international wildlife trade creates bogus markets at the expense of creatures that have survived on this planet for millions of years. And the other surrounds us, hiding in plain sight — a world that the oil and gas companies don’t want the rest of us to see. Using covert tactics and state-of-the-art technology, the “6” team exposes these two worlds for the first time.

THE DIRECTOR’S STORY

A film can be the most powerful weapon in the world—a weapon of mass construction. I’m interested in radically changing how people perceive a documentary by making it entertaining and using narrative filmmaking conventions. With this film I want to tackle the most important problem the world has ever faced, the epic loss of biodiversity. By creating a compelling film and a groundbreaking activation campaign, we want to create a movement that inspires the masses. Humanity is one step away from greatness or disaster... It could be that a film helps save us.

We’re the only generation that can stop this — I see that as a tremendous opportunity

Louie Psihoyos, Executive Director of the Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS), is recognized as one of the top photographers in the world. He was hired directly out of college to shoot for National Geographic and created images for the yellow-bordered magazine for 18 years. His ability to bring humanity and wit to complicated science stories carries over to his filmmaking. An ardent diver and dive photographer, he feels compelled to show the world the decline of our planet’s crucial resource, the oceans.
