My Extinction

My Extinction

A filmmaker confronts his feelings around climate change and gets involved in a grassroots environmental movement in this British documentary. Its central theme of eco-anxiety is treated with sensitivity and humour. What does it take for us to act on the climate crisis – especially if we're the kind of person who should already be acting? In this funny, relatable portrait, a concerned yet ineffectual dad finds the first step is letting those unbearable feelings of climate anxiety in, instead of pushing them aside. But as he meets others like him, he discovers how oil-backed propagandists funded our denial and paralysis. He sets out to unmask the vested interests responsible, helping raise a generation's leading authors in a vibrant chorus. MY EXTINCTION is a revealingly honest account of how to feel your feelings, act on your privilege, and get active when threatened with extinction.
