My Extinction (15)

Thursday, September 28

Dir. Josh Appignanesi, UK, 2023, 80 mins. Feat: Zadie Smith, Mark Rylance, Simon Schama, Ali Smith, George Monbiot, Simon McBurney, Esther Stanford-Xosei, Susie Orbach, AL Kennedy, Juliet Stevenson and many more.

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. They set out to unmask the vested interests responsible, helping raise a generation’s leading authors in vibrant chorus at the game-changing Tufton Street protest.

MY EXTINCTION is a revealingly honest account of how to feel your feelings, act on your privilege, and get active when threatened with extinction.

There will be a Q&A with Extinction Rebellion Plymouth after the film.
