ANTHROPOCENE follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group who, after nearly 10 years of research, are arguing 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, to the biggest terrestrial machines ever built in Germany, to psychedelic potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains and to the devastated Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the filmmakers have travelled around the globe to document human planetary domination.
