EXPOSING THE TRUE COST OF EXTINCTION
Can we stop the Earth’s Sixth Mass Extinction?
The Price is a feature-length documentary (currently in post-production) that tells the story of the approaching Sixth Mass Extinction. Now recognized as more threatening to human existence than even climate change, this manmade cataclysm has the potential to wipe 75% of existing species from the planet, including much of the human race.
Standing at the brink of this evolutionary abyss is the majestic rhino. With its horn, gram for gram, THE MOST EXPENSIVE ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE in world black-markets today and all five of its species facing extinction, the rhino is a symbolic gatekeeper for the estimated 1,000 to 30,000 plant and animal species now disappearing at 1,000 to 10,000 times the natural rate each year.
Offering viewers the most comprehensive exploration ever undertaken of the deadly, transnational Rhino Wars, The Price shines a light upon the international laws, economic forces, and pervasive corruption that are now driving not just the seemingly unstoppable destruction of the rhino, but the vast majority of what remains of the wild world.
