Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

Three award-winning filmmakers travel to 20 countries to document the impact of humans on the planet in this eye-opening documentary.

"The third collaboration between photographer-turned-filmmaker Edward Burtynsky and co-directors Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier is astonishing in scale and perspective. It traverses the globe from Kenya, where mounds of illegal elephant tusks are set alight, to colossal mining operations in Russia and Germany, and gaudy evaporation pools in Chile's Atacama Desert. The striking images demonstrate how humans are shaping our planet at an ever-increasing rate – hence the title, for this is the age in which human activity is the dominant influence on the environment." (Sydney Film Festival)

[The film is] the plate of vegetables that it sounds like, but its cinematography and passion for our planet make a strong case for your attention.

It is important to remind people - again and again and again - that we can't continue to treat the planet like this.
