Anthropocene: The Human Epoch - Film Screening

We join IU Center for Rural Engagement, IU Cinema, and Cicada Cinema in presenting a film screening of Anthropocene: The Human Epoch.
 

A collection of short films made by local filmmakers will be screened at 6:30 p.m. followed by our feature film at 7 p.m. These shorts were produced for the Instant Gratification Movie Challenge.

A stunning sensory experience and cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet, Anthropocene: The Human Epoch is a years-in-the-making feature documentary from the award-winning team behind Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013) and narrated by Alicia Vikander. The film follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group who, after nearly 10 years of research, argue that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century as a result of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth.


(2019, Directed by Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier, and Edward Burtynsky, Not rated, 87 min.)

Free event, seating is limited.
