Director: Josh Appignanesi
Q&A hosted by Rebecca Marshall with director Josh Appignanesi, Andy Moore representing XR Hastings and St.Leonards and Jessica Townsend from MP Watch
80 mins / 2023 / UK

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 2020 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.

Presented by Dear Future, a live cinema organisation. Dear Future explores ways of thinking into the future by bringing together film, conversation and creativity.

A Q&A with the film's director, Dear Future, XR Hastings & St Leonards, and MP Watch will follow the screening, so stick around for a lively discussion.
