Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

This third collaboration between award-winning photographer Edward Burtynsky, and acclaimed filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier, continues their exploration of industrialization and resource extraction. Spanning numerous countries, Anthropocene: The Human Epoch is a mesmerizing and thought-provoking rumination on what drives us as a species — as well as wake-up call on the destruction we have wrought.

In English with French subtitles.
