DOUBLE BILL: Racing Extinction | In Between
Wild up your Wednesday evening and head to the Big Screen Bristol on At-Bristol’s Millennium Square for a thought-provoking conservation double bill.

In groundbreaking documentary "Racing Extinction", director Louie Psihoyos and the group behind the Academy Award®-winning film “The Cove”, assemble a team of artists and activists on a new undercover operation to expose the hidden world of endangered species and the race to protect them against mass extinction. Spanning the globe to infiltrate the world’s most dangerous black markets and using high tech tactics to document the link between carbon emissions and species extinction, the documentary reveals stunning, never before seen images that truly change the way we see the world.
A production by Okeanos – Foundation for the Sea and Discovery Channel present an Oceanic Preservation Society film. In association with Vulcan Productions, the Li Ka Shing Foundation, Earth Day Texas, JP's Peace, Love & Happiness Foundation, Diamond Docs, and Insurgent.
Wildscreen Panda Award nominations: Creative Innovation Award, Impact Award, People and Nature Award and Popular Broadcast Award

The screening will be preceded by the showing of "In Between", a hauntingly beautiful and poetic short film about a remote corner of the world where a living relic from a prehistoric age still exists. A magnificent creature that once roamed northern plains alongside mammoths and sabertooth cats, enduring where others vanished.
A production by Rolf Steinmann
Wildscreen Panda Award nominations: Cinematography Award and Short Award
