Anthropocene: The Human Epoch
August 29 – October 6, 2019
Various theatres across the U.S.

A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive re-engineering of the planet, Anthropocene: The Human Epoch is a feature documentary narrated by Alicia Vikander. The film, directed by Canadians Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier and Edward Burtynsky, follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group who, after nearly 10 years of research, argue that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century as a result of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth. Anthropocene: The Human Epoch will be presented in theatres across the country beginning August 29 through October 6, 2019.
