Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

Select dates October 6 - December 30
Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario

Dir. Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier, and Edward Burtynsky
2018 | 1 h 27 min
We have reached an unprecedented moment in planetary history. Humans now affect the Earth and its processes more than all other natural forces combined.

Another collaboration from Jennifer Baichwal, Edward Burtynsky and Nicholas de Pencier, Anthropocene: The Human Epoch is an exploration of the complex and indelible human signature on the Earth. The third in a trilogy of films including Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013), the film captures the most spectacular evidence of human influence, while taking time to reflect on the deeper meaning of what these profound transformations signify.

Opens in Toronto theatres September 28 and in select cities across Canada October 5.
