Anthropocene: The Human Epoch, directed by Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier and Edward Burtynsky and produced over four years, is a cinematic reflection on the massive intervention of man in the planet’s reconfiguration. The third work of a trilogy that includes Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013), the film, whose images are accompanied by the voice of Oscar-winning narrator Alicia Vikander, follows the research of an international group of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group, engaged for almost ten years in demonstrating the transition from the Holocene to a new geological era, the Anthropocene, in the middle of the 20th century. At the crossroads of art and science, Anthropocene: The Human Epoch testifies to a critical moment in geological history, providing a provocative and incisive contribution to the reflection on the extent of environmental damage caused by our species.
