ANTHROPOCENE: THE HUMAN EPOCH
FILM SCREENING AND DISCUSSION AT THE LOFT

APRIL 5 • 7pm
APRIL 6 • 2pm

The Friday screening will be followed by a discussion with energy-systems and sustainability expert Ralph Torrie; co-producer Nicholas de Pencier will host a Q&A after the Saturday matinee.

The third collaboration of a remarkable team of Canadians – awarding-winning photographer Edward Burtynsky and acclaimed filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier – this documentary continues their exploration of industrialization and extraction in astonishing scale and perspective. The trio embarked on an epic journey around the world (to every continent save Antarctica) to capture staggering evidence of human influence.

Filmed over three years in 20 countries and 43 locations, Anthropocene takes viewers where no camera has gone before – to psychedelic potash mines in Russia, ivory tusk infernos in Kenya, bizarrely beautiful lithium ponds in the Atacama Desert, into the maw of German land-eating machines and the vast Lagos landfill – it’s like an acid trip revealing the immensity of human impact on the planet.

Tickets are $12/show
