Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier, Edward Burtynsky

Exposing the earth’s fractured state, Anthropocene: The Human Epoch offers a cinematic meditation on the way human activity has reshaped the earth. This stunning follow up to Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013), witnesses a critical moment in geological history, and lays bare the gashes, wounds and irreparable marks of industrialisation and extraction.

“…a cinematic meditation on the way human activity has reshaped the earth”

Our human presence is no silent entity. The dawn of Anthropocene is illustrated in our plastic imprints in the sediment; in the delicate creations of enlightened craftsmen, etched into marble surfaces and ivory tusks; in the unnatural depths tunnelled through rock by masterminds of human design. Revealing obscure sites of human destruction, this timely documentary portrays the processes dominating and repurposing the earth for the material gains of humanity.
