The film, which is still a work-in-progress, utilizes state-of-the-art equipment as a team of activists risk their lives intent to show the world never-before-seen images that will change the way people understand issues of endangered species and mass extinction. The final cut is expected to be completed sometime this year.
Last time Greek Reporter spoke with Psihoyos, “6” was just getting underway, and he told us, “The bright minds of our culture…they see this disaster coming, but they can’t get the word out, so that’s what we’re trying to do with this next film. We want to do something that’s going to make all the eyes of the world take notice.”
The Greek-American director, whose parents come from a village near Sparta, Greece, won the Best Feature Documentary Oscar in 2010 for “The Cove.” Psihoyos gave us some insight on the challenges he and his team faced while making “6” and shared his thoughts on the overfishing that has posed a problem in Greece and throughout the Mediterranean.
