A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive re-engineering of the planet. This is the third film in the directing team’s spiritual trilogy which includes MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPES (2006) and WATERMARK (2013). This film follows the research of an international body of scientists who, after nearly 10 years of research, are arguing that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century because of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth. As unforgettable imagery is used to visually intersect art and science, this film manages to satisfy both the basic thirst for visual splendour at the cinema while tackling some of the most complex and reflective ideas that cinema is able to exercise. Who doesn’t love when large scale documentaries dip their toe into such grand ideas where our own planet into observed into abstraction? This is what cinema was invented for.
