The Race to Save The World follows the passion and unwavering commitment of people who aren't putting their heads in the sand, or waiting for someone else to do something: they’re in the trenches fighting climate change. The Race to Save The World is a film about people, ages 15 to 72, who see the danger coming and are putting their lives on the line to try to turn this around. This is an uplifting film that will inspire viewers to stop waiting on the sidelines and make their voices heard for a livable future.
The huge personal risks people are taking everyday to save our planet from toxic fossil fuel interests pulsates throughout The Race To Save The World. The courage of the climate activists featured - young and old - gives goosebumps. Story-telling, litigation and civil disobedience are essential to creating a greener, healthier and fairer future for all.
There is still time to prevent catastrophic climate change. This powerful film shows how each of us can use our voice and our actions to save this planet from destruction. Watch it and be inspired to make a difference.
Courageous people who have been willing to put their bodies on the line for issues they cared about have moved our country forward in so many ways, over so many years. As The Race to Save the World shows us, that passion and commitment is alive and well, with diverse people - from teens to grandmas - engaging in the time honored tradition of protest and civil disobedience to combat the climate crisis. I hope everyone will watch this film and be inspired to join these everyday heroes in the struggle of our lifetime.
"I just watched and was deeply moved. Within every activist [whether youth striker, film maker or 'high level champion'] there is a complex set of emotions, usually encompassing pain, grief, anger but overall deep love for each other, all living beings and the beautiful home we share."
These are important stories, told in engaging fashion--and I can testify that there are similar scenes from every corner of the planet. The fight to halt the destruction of the planet's climate system may be the biggest movement in earth history, and these brave people help tell a tale everyone needs to hear!
Successful social movements always have a small number of deeply-committed people willing to take extraordinary risks. The Race offers a frank look at some Americans who have chosen to place their bodies at the "tip of the spear" in the fight for climate justice. Their courage, and their resolute optimism, is inspiring.
The Race to Save the World realistically captures characters who take real risks and the impacts on their loved ones and on themselves. Implicitly it raises questions about the best way to achieve environmental goals... Gantz' film spurs us to think about how to be more effective.
This is what courage looks like. Why watch an action-hero fictional movie when you can see real heroes fighting for the future of the planet? Better yet, after you've watched, join them!
