From the creators of Rogue, MJ Bassett brings a new and fierce thriller for Lionsgate.
Endangered Species is an intense, action packed survival-adventure about a wealthy American family who travel to the vast African wilderness of Kenya hoping for a dream vacation filled with excitement, bonding and a chance to fix the growing rifts within their family.
While enjoying the safari, their vehicle is attacked by a rhino protecting her calf, the family is left stranded miles from help and their dream vacation turns into a nightmarish struggle for survival in a world where they are the bottom of the food chain.
Through her work, Bassett is hoping to raise awareness for the state of the planet and humans’ impact on the natural world. This, she says, is especially timely during the global COVID-19 pandemic. MJ Basset is keen to wrap her projects into a genre, whether it’s a horror thing or an action or a combination of both.
Writer and director, MJ Basset with writer Isabel Bassett, producer Jay Taylor Kwesi Dickson, Molly Hassell, MJ Bassett and Cinematographer Brendan Barnes.
The project is set and beautifully shot in Kenya and includes a strong cast from Rebecca Romijn, Philip Winchester, Isabel Bassett, Michael Johnston, Chris Fisher and Jerry O'Connell.

‘A big thank you to everyone to OnSight who worked with us on the film. It was such a pleasure working with such a smart, creative, engaged and kind team of people.’
I am Gen Z will premiere at this years CPH:DOX festival April 21 — May 12
Produced by Chantelle De Carvalho and Directed by Liz Smith, this documentary explores the impact of the digital revolution and smartphones on today's teenagers and what that might mean for the future.
For those who don't know, Generation Z (aka Gen Z, iGen, or centennials), refers to the generation that was born between 1996-2010, following millennials. This generation has been raised on the internet and social media, with some the oldest finishing college by 2020 and entering the workforce.
Investigated through expert interviews and the web lens of Generation Z, the documentary explores how the explosion of the digital revolution is impacting our society, our brains and mental health.
The current tech revolution is moving at hyper speed and brings with it a lot of positives, but there is a dark side too. When our children become adults the world will be a very different place to the one we know today. It is critical that we ask questions now about the role we want tech to play in our lives and make conscious decisions about how we integrate it into our lives, and in the lives of our children.
This documentary raises questions about the contemporary world we live in, questioning what will our children become, have smartphones destroyed a generation? OnSight have had our eyes truly opened to this informative documentary and can't wait for the world to see it. OnSight’s contribution to the film includes, Colourist Ellory Payne, Online Editor Adam Sample, Re-Recording Mixer Andy Coles and Post Producer Jeff Halsey.
