All over the world species are becoming extinct at an astonishing rate, from 1000 to 10,000 times faster than normal. The loss of biodiversity has become so severe that scientists are calling it a mass extinction event. Call of Life: Facing the Mass Extinction is the first feature documentary to investigate the growing threat to Earth’s life support systems from this unprecedented loss of biodiversity. Through interviews with leading scientists, psychologists, anthropologists, philosophers, and indigenous and religious leaders, the film explores the causes, the scope, and the potential effects of the mass extinction, but also looks beyond the immediate causes of the crisis to consider how our cultural and economic systems, along with deep-seated psychological and behavioral patterns, have allowed this situation to develop, continue to reinforce it, and even determine our response to it.

Call of Life tells the story of a crisis not only in nature, but also in human nature, a crisis more threatening than anything human beings have ever faced before.

Before the feature presentation, Call of Life, a short clip from a film about Jung called "Matter of Heart" will be presented. Following the screening, there will be a conversation between Call of Life executive producer David Ulansey and a Jungian analyst, Dr. Thomas Singer.

Please register in advance at calloflife.eventbrite.com although no one will be turned away at the door. This event is co-sponsored by the C.G. Jung Institute in San Francisco. For more information go to http://www.sfjung.org

All Library events are free and open to the public.
