The documentary “Escape from Extinction” is the inaugural 90-minute documentary from the American Humane Society. The film “throws a vitally important spotlight on critical efforts that may be among the last, best chances to save one million species on the verge of a catastrophic mass extinction.”
Narrated by Academy Award-, Tony- and Emmy-Award-winner Helen Mirren, the film examines the work of the major zoological organizations that are racing against the clock to preserve the million species disappearing in today’s sixth mass extinction. Frozen River Film Festival will also be recording a question and answer session with the film’s director, Matthew Brady, which will be available for viewers following the film.
“Escape from Extinction” will be available for online streaming starting February 13 at 10:00 a.m. through 11:30 a.m. on February 20 on the Frozen River Film Festival’s streaming site, Eventive. Tickets and festival passes can be purchased online at www.frff.org/tickets/.
