ANTHROPOCENE: THE HUMAN EPOCH

The third in a trilogy (following 2006's MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPES and 2013's WATERMARK), ANTHROPOCENE: THE HUMAN EPOCH takes viewers on a worldwide tour narrated by Alicia Vikander, from concrete seawalls in China, which now cover 60 percent of the mainland coast, to the biggest terrestrial machines ever built in Germany; potash mines in Russia's Ural Mountains; a heavy metal festival in the closed city of Norilsk, Siberia; the devastated Great Barrier Reef in Australia; and lithium evaporation ponds in South America's Atacama Desert. High-end production values and state-of-the-art camera techniques capture evidence of human planetary domination. At the intersection of art and science, this film bears witness to a critical moment in geological history. DIR/SCR Jennifer Baichwal; DIR Edward Burtynsky; DIR/PROD Nicholas de Pencier. Canada, 2018, color, 87 min. In English, Russian, Italian, German, Mandarin and Cantonese with English subtitles. NOT RATED
