Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

Thursday, November 01, 2018, 07:00pm

November 1–4 (times vary)

PG, coarse language
Dir: Jennifer Baichwal/Edward Burtynsky/Nicholas de Pencier, Canada, 87 min. In English and multiple languages with English subtitles.

“Vast rectangular ponds of foul yellow water lie evaporating in the Chilean desert; they will produce the lithium that powers electric-car batteries. A gorgeous red-and-grey rock is imprinted with an eye-catching circular pattern: It’s the mark of Russian potash mining, extracting one of the fertilizers that is permanently altering the composition of the Earth’s soil. Anthropocene: The Human Epoch is packed with such shattering images and astounding ironies. As documentarians Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier pursue their collaboration with photographer Edward Burtynsky in a third film (following Manufactured Landscapes and Watermark), they strike a delicate yet purposeful balance between observation and advocacy. Both shocking and beautiful, the film impresses itself on the viewer with the awesome scale of the imagery—and with the urgency behind it. We have entered an epoch in which human activity is shaping the planet more than any natural force. Anthropocene bears witness that something’s got to give.”—Kate Taylor, The Globe and Mail
