Event Description

The One Planet Film Festival at St. Mary's College presents

Call of Life: Facing the Mass Extinction (2010; 80 min)

Including Q&A with the director, Monte Thompson, co-producer Susan Scott, and former Sierra Club national vice president Bernard Daley Zaleha!!

Call of life has won many awards and accolades

If current trends continue, scientists warn that within a few decades at least HALF of all plant and animal species on Earth will disappear forever.

All over the world species are becoming extinct at an astonishing rate, from 1000 to 10,000 times faster than normal. The loss of biodiversity has become so severe that scientists are calling it a mass extinctionevent.

Call of Life: Facing the Mass Extinction is the first feature documentary to investigate the growing threat to Earth’s life support systems from this unprecedented loss of biodiversity. Through interviews with leading scientists, psychologists, anthropologists, philosophers, and indigenous and religious leaders, the film explores the causes, the scope, and the potential effects of the mass extinction, but also looks beyond the immediate causes of the crisis to consider how our cultural and economic systems, along with deep-seated psychological and behavioral patterns, have allowed this situation to develop, continue to reinforce it, and even determine our response to it.

Call of Life tells the story of a crisis not only in nature, but also in human nature, a crisis more threatening than anything human beings have ever faced before. See the trailer…
