Take One Action Film Festival presents a screening of Anthropocene, a cinematic meditation on the way human activity has reshaped the Earth.

Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

About Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

This stunning follow-up to Manufactured Landscapes and Watermark offers a cinematic meditation on the way human activity has reshaped the Earth, documenting our massive reengineering of the planet’s surface in astonishing scale and perspective. Spanning numerous countries, Anthropocene lays bare the gashes, wounds and irreparable marks of industrialisation and extraction, revealing how our mania for conquest has created a global epidemic.

"Gorgeously shot documentary [...] striking cinematography" - Hollywood Reporter

Plus short: Hybrids (Florian Brauch, Matthieu Pujol, Kim Tailhades, Yohan Thireau, Romain Thirion | France | 2017 | 6 min)

BEYOND THE SCREEN
Have we moved “beyond nature”? Join us after the film as we explore our responsibilities (towards the planet and towards each other) and our capacity for action.
