The film producers of Racing Extinction teamed up with the Vatican to create a powerful work. Due to pollution and international wildlife trade, the world’s species are in danger. Their potential loss inspired the artists behind the movie to create an installation of projections onto the ancient façade of St. Peter’s Basilica, drawing the attention of thousands of passersby.
