In this EXCLUSIVE PLANT CEO special we speak with Louie Psihoyos, Executive Director of Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS). Louie has been creating highly moving documentaries for over 10 years now. With the thread of the films being that we are already going through the 6th mass extinction on the earth as result of human interference. This led him to his first film ‘The Cove’ which won an Academy Award for Best documentary feature, that exposed dolphin hunting. The second film ‘Racing Extinction’ recently won the Best Green Film of the Decade, which explored species extinction and exposed the shark finning trade. We also focus on the world of Super Athletes like Lewis Hamilton who have turned to eating plant-based in ‘The Game Changers’. During the first month of release on Netflix, searches for “plant-based diet” rose by 350% globally. So all his films have resulted in becoming social movements of change for the better. We also discuss the automotive industry’s journey to electrification; especially with Elon Musk and TESLA that resulted in him commissioning a build of a real life James Bond car that even ‘Q’ would be happy with. It was also amazing to know a little more about all his upcoming projects too.
