Anthropocene: The Human Epoch - VTIFF Film Screening

The Vermont International Film Festival presents a screening of the 2018 film by Jennifer Baichwal, Edward Burtynsky, and Nicholas De Pencier. A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive re-engineering of the planet. Anthropocene follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group which, after nearly 10 years of research, argues that as a result of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth, the Holocene Epoch gave way in the mid-twentieth century to what they call the Anthropocene Epoch. 87 minutes.

Screening will be followed by a Q & A and discussion with EcoCultureLab Coordinator Adrian Ivakhiv, Professor of Environmental Thought and Culture at the University of Vermont.

7:00 PM, Main Street Landing Film House, 60 Lake Street, 3rd floor, Burlington, Vermont.
