Anthropocene - the human epoch

Allowed 87 minutes 2018 7.2

Nobel laureate Paul J. Crutzen proposed in 2000 that the era we now live in could be called anthropocene because of the great influence humanity has had on the earth since industrialization began in the early 1800s. The documentary Anthropocene – the human epoch is a cinematic journey through six continents and 20 countries to illustrate how man is changing the earth. The Canadian film team takes us from smelters in Siberia to coal shafts in Germany and gigantic landfills in Kenya while actress Alicia Vikander's sober narrative comments on what we see.
