A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet, Anthropocene: The Human Epoch is a four years in the making feature documentary film from the multiple-award winning filmmaking team.
Third in a trilogy that includes Manufactured Landscapes and Watermark, the film follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group who, after nearly 10 years of research, are arguing that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century, because of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth. Containing some of the most beautiful and vast images in cinema, Anthropocene is a visual representation of our current earthly moment. Narrated by Alicia Vikander.
...it becomes clear that the sobering spectacles within Anthropocene - The Human Epoch will haunt us all on their own.ROGER EBERT
