How to Let Go of the World (and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change) – HBO

A few months ago, EMA hosted the L.A. premiere of “How to Let Go” and we can safely say that everyone in the theater was galvanized to take action after seeing the doc.

From the website: In How to Let Go of the World and Love All The Things Climate Can’t Change, Oscar Nominated director Josh Fox (GASLAND) continues in his deeply personal style, investigating climate change – the greatest threat our world has ever known. Traveling to 12 countries on 6 continents, the film acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is it that climate change can’t destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?

Release Date: January 23, 2016

Director: Josh Fox

Racing Extinction – Discovery 

Sometimes the most important documentaries are the toughest to watch. Tuning out while the world experiences its next mass extinction, this time at the hands of human activities is not an option. We must act now to save our planet from a loss of biodiversity, and the first step is admitting it’s happening.

From the website: Utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, Oscar®-winner Louie Psihoyos (The Cove) assembles a team of artists and activists intent on showing the world never-before-seen images that expose issues of endangered species and mass extinction.

Release Date: September 18th, 2015

Director: Louie Psihoyos
