Anthropocene: The Human Epoch


2018 • dir Jennifer Baichwal, Edward Burtynsky, Nicholas de Pencier • 87 min • DCP

To coincide with the U.N. Climate Action Summit, arthouse distributor Kino Lorber, in partnership with Kanopy, is bringing ANTHROPOCENE: THE HUMAN EPOCH to theaters across the U.S. for a nationwide screening event on September 25 – and the Brattle is proud to be participating.

A stunning sensory experience and cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet, ANTHROPOCENE is a years-in-the-making feature documentary from the award-winning team behind Manufactured Landscapes and Watermark and narrated by Alicia Vikander.

The filmmakers have traversed the globe using state of the art camera techniques to document the evidence and experience of human planetary domination. At the intersection of art and science, ANTHROPOCENE witnesses a critical moment in geological history — bringing a provocative and unforgettable experience of our species’ breadth and impact. – Kino Lorber

“To say that there are no easy answers to planetary woes is to state the obvious. But the film seeks to reveal rather than lecture, in the hope that our eyes will convince our brains to act before it’s too late.”
– Peter Howell, Toronto Star

“Its cinematography and passion for our planet make a strong case for your attention.”
– Nick Allen,
