Description by

Fueled by an abiding passion for saving endangered animals, Richard Ogust abandons his life as a writer to build a fragile ark that is constantly on the brink of capsizing. CHANCES OF THE WORLD CHANGING is the poetic, lyrical tale of a saintly, but all-too-human artist who sacrifices nearly everything in his quest to preserve the world s disappearing turtles and tortoises.

Pressed into bankruptcy, living out of a tent, and nearly driven mad by bureaucracy and the needs of his 1000-plus turtles, Ogust is in a furious race against time to keep his turtles and his well-being intact. Through depressing setbacks and moments of triumph, Ogust maintains his vision of a future where his turtles, and he, can return home.

Award-winning CHANCES OF THE WORLD CHANGING, directed by Eric Daniel Metzgar, features stunning photography of some of the planet's
nearly-extinct turtle species and pays tribute to their tortoise-pace lifestyle in a rabbit s world. An honest and patient study in the joys and sorrows of survival, CHANCES OF THE WORLD CHANGING is cinema verité on every scale, an epic nestled in the eternal moment. (Macleans)

DVD Features: Interview with Director Eric Daniel Metzgar; Music Video: Faun Fables; Filmmaker Biographies
