About the film
“The Race To Save The World” is a climate change film like no other. Instead of focusing on paralyzing facts and numbers, this inspiring feature takes a unique approach by following
passionate activists, ages 15-71, who are in the trenches fighting for a livable future. These brave climate warriors put their lives on the line to push for change, regardless of the personal cost.
Emmy award-winning filmmaker Joe Gantz brings an urgent and intimate portrait of the protests, arrests, courtroom drama and family turmoil these activists endure as they single-mindedly
focus their attention on the goal of creating a more sustainable world for future generations.
“This congregation generously supported me on my march across America with the Great March for Climate Action that is featured in the film,” said Miriam Kashia. “UUS members and friends a wonderful potluck dinner for us when we came through Iowa City, and many of you housed my Marcher friends. You will see some of them in the film. The film is not your typical gloom and doom, heartbreaking, “we’re screwed,” scary climate film. Nor is it filled with data and charts and stats that make your head spin. The RACE is dynamic, inspiring, upbeat and exciting. It’s about ordinary folks (like yours truly) who got outside their comfort zone and did something real, powerful and meaningful to make a difference about our global climate crisis.”
