Anthropocene – a feature film by Steve Bradshaw
“Beautiful… eye-opening… chilling… intensely engaging… must-see… captivating… well-chosen black humour… visually stunning! EVERYONE should watch…”
A Working Group of international scientists is deciding whether to declare a new geological epoch – the Anthropocene – a planet shaped more by mankind than nature. Its members tell the story of the Anthropocene and argue whether it’s a tragedy, a comedy, or something more surreal. With archival footage, award-winning stills and interviews, ANTHROPOCENE proposes a common secular narrative for mankind but leaves viewers to decide how we should write the ending. The film has the blessing of Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen, who coined the term, and is the first feature film about the Anthropocene. It is now our turn to decide–in this decade–how the Anthropocene will end.
“This is an excellent film with beautiful pictures and authentic interviews. Thanks to the film makers for a tremendous job and compelling introduction to the Anthropocene.” Professor Paul J. Crutzen, Atmospheric chemist, Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry who helped coin the term Anthropocene.
“The more people watch this film and join the global discussion, the more progress we will be able to make, and the more hope we will have.” H-Net.
“Far and away the best…Should appeal to anyone with an interest in the future of humanity.” Frank Oldfield, The Anthropocene Review
