NARRATED BY ALICIA VIKANDER

A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive re-engineering of the planet, Anthropocene is a four-years-in-the-making feature documentary film from the multiple-award-winning team of Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier, and Edward Burtynsky.

Third in a trilogy that includes Manufactured Landscapes (showing October 2) and Watermark (showing October 9), 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.

From concrete seawalls in China that now cover 60% of the mainland coast, to the biggest terrestrial machines ever built in Germany, to psychedelic potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains, to metal festivals in the closed city of Norilsk, to the devastated Great Barrier Reef in Australia and surreal lithium evaporation ponds in the Atacama desert, the filmmakers have traversed the globe using high-end production values and state-of-the-art camera techniques to document evidence and experience of human planetary domination.    EdwardBurtynsky.com

"FOUR STARS!  A delicate yet purposeful balance between observation and advocacy. Both shocking and beautiful, the film impresses itself on the viewer with the awesome scale of the imagery – and with the urgency behind it."
--The Globe and Mail

“A mesmerizing and disturbing rumination on what drives us as a species, and a call to wake up to the destruction caused by our dominance. These startling dystopian visions are not future projections, they reflect a reality that is already here—and if we are to change course, the first step will be a revolutionary shift in consciousness.”
–Toronto International Film Festival
