A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering 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 (2006) and Watermark (2013), 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.
Making its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, the Anthropocene documentary will complement the simultaneous museum exhibitions opening on September 28, 2018 at both the Art Gallery of Ontario and the National Gallery of Canada.
The film will make its theatrical debut in select Canadian cities on October 5, 2018.
