Description

Multiple-award winning filmmaking team Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier, and Edward Burtynsky present an unforgettable exploration of humanity's profound and irreversible changes to the Earth. Third in a trilogy that includes Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013), Anthropocene: The Human Epoch makes a compelling case that humans now affect the Earth's systems more than any other natural force. Covering a wide scope of industries and environments, viewers are presented with gargantuan efforts in China to hold back the sea, immense machines the size of skyscrapers in Germany that peel back the Earth's surface in search of the precious resources beneath, hauntingly beautiful mines, quarries, and devastated natural landscapes. As mesmerizing as it is confrontational, Anthropocene puts a focus on the planet itself, and the sobering reality that it is the only one we have and its resources are not unlimited.
