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 extinction event.
*Call of Life: Facing the Mass Extinction* investigates 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, *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.
Democracy in Action Chicago will co-sponsor this free screening with Chicago Area Peace Action and New Economy Week.
