The Human Epoch

(2019/2020 Films)

Tue, Mar 10
7:30 PM
Registration recommended (opens Feb 18). More info >>

Anthropocene: The Human Epoch follows the research of the Anthropocene Working Group, an international body of scientists who argue that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century because of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth. From concrete seawalls in China that now cover 60% of the mainland coast, to the biggest terrestrial machines ever built in Germany, the film provides a provocative and unforgettable experience of our species’ breadth and impact. (Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier and Edward Burtynsky, 2018, 127 min.)

A Q&A with filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal will follow the screening.

Presented with the Carsey-Wolf Center in conjunction with UCSB Reads

With thanks to our visionary partners, Lynda Weinman and Bruce Heavin, for their support of the Thematic Learning Initiative
