Performance Notes

× The third film in a trilogy (companion to Manufactured Landscapes and Watermark) about humanity’s massive re-engineering of the planet created in collaboration between master documentarians Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier with legendary photographer, Edward Burtynsky. ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch is a four years in the making enthralling piece of experiential cinema that transports us around the globe to pay witness to the irreparable changes that humanity has wrought on our planet.

“While it’s one thing to be apprised of the alarming fact that humans move more sediment than all of the world’s rivers combined, it’s another proposition entirely to lay eyes on what that actually entails through the graces of Burtynsky’s trademark aerial tableaux. The staggering images captured here are at once surreal and sobering: landfill sites staffed by thousands… mountains of elephant tusks aflame… concrete seawalls lining China’s coastline… monolithic machines hell-bent on terraforming their surroundings… potash mines that evoke a bad drug trip… this is necessary filmmaking of the highest order that unfolds on a dizzying, often inconceivable scale.” – VIFF
