The Race to Save the World

The Race to Save the World

Director: Joe Gantz

Emmy Award-winning Director Joe Ganz’s film THE RACE TO SAVE THE WORLD follows people of all ages who are in the trenches doing everything they can to fight climate change. Rather than focusing on scary statistics and abstract predictions, this film shows 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 taking action to make an impact. The Race to Save The World will inspire viewers to stop waiting on the sidelines and make their voices heard in the fight for a livable future.

“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!” – Bill McKibben, founder 350.org
