Anthropocene: The Human Epoch
A film by Edward Burtynsky, Jennifer Baichwal, and Nicholas De Pencier
Anthropocene: The Human Epoch follows the research of an international body of scientists who spent 10 years researching the 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 to document evidence and experience of human planetary domination.
