Event type: All Ages
Director: Edward Burtynsky, Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier
English, 87 minutes, G
A visually stunning and deeply thought-provoking meditation on the profound and often destructive changes that mankind has wrought on this planet, ANTHROPOCENE: THE HUMAN EPOCH is the third in a collaboration that has already wrought two of the finest ever Canadian documentaries in MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPES and WATERMARK (which closed the KCFF in 2014). Director Jennifer Baichwal and her partner, producer and cinematographer Nicholas de Pencier once again join forces with photographer Edward Burtynsky for a wide-ranging look at the dramatic places and very memorable people who are part of this world-altering process. Not soon forgotten, the resulting journey takes viewers from potash mines in the Ural Mountains to Australia’s ravaged Great Barrier Reef to the burning of Africa’s largest stockpile of elephant ivory and rhino horn.
