ANTHROPOCENE: THE HUMAN EPOCH
2019, Kino Lorber, 87 min, Canada, Dir: Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier, Edward Burtynsky

A stunning sensory experience and cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive re-engineering of the planet, this years-in-the-making documentary follows an international body of scientists who, after nearly 10 years of research, argue that the Holocene epoch gave way to the Anthropocene epoch in the mid-20th century as a result 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 the devastated Great Barrier Reef in Australia and massive marble quarries in Carrara, the filmmakers have traversed the globe using state-of-the-art camera techniques to document the evidence and experience of human planetary domination.
