Anthropocene: The Human Epoch (12A)
Documentary: A cinematic meditation on humanity's massive reengineering of the planet.
Filmakers travel to six continents and 20 countries to document the impact humans have made on the planet.
In the current geological epoch we are living through, humans are the primary cause of permanent planetary change. We have moved the planet outside of its natural limits and become the dominant feature of the earth. We have changed the world irreversibly. Documenting our mass reengineering of the planet's surface, Anthropocene exposes, in great scale and perspective, the great wounds industrialisation and extraction is having. In a stunning follow up to Manufactured Landscapes and Watermark, Anthropocene: The Human Epoch painfully illustrates how our mania for conquest has created a global epidemic.
Running time 1hour 27mins
