STRAW India in collaboration with the NSS-IIT Delhi (, New Delhi, will be screening the 94 minutes film, Racing Extinction, an eco-thriller that examines the role of human beings in mass extinction of at least half of world’s species.

This 2015 film is made by Academy Award-winning filmmaker, Louie Psihoyos, who has also directed the film - The Cove. He joins forces with activists, scientists, nature photographers and inventors to give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at black markets where endangered species are sold. With hidden cameras on, these activists uncover highly endangered species being sold at markets all over Asia. Psihoyos says, “Wildlife trade is second only to the drug trade." The film goes beyond the black market trade to highlight how humans' are having a devastating impact on other species with greenhouse gas emissions.

This film screening is part of NSS - IIT-Delhi’s Symbiosis Program, which is a weeklong festival related to environment.

This is a free event and all are invited. Those interested in volunteering to support the event may contact us at [email protected].
