Man’s global exploitation of the Earth and the concomitant, irreversible transformation of the planet are the focus of Anthropocene. Filmed over a period of four years, the visually impressive documentary finds such monstrous testimony of human influence on all continents and in all spheres of life that it often appears surreal. With stunning images, Anthropocene brings together the deep-reaching traces of the human age to create an equally artful and nightmarish visual experience. (87 minutes)
