In their follow-up to Manufactured Landscapes and Watermark (TOAFF14), photographer Edward Burtynsky and his artistic collaborators Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de pencier offer a cinematic meditation on the way human activity has reshaped the Earth.

Whether or not one adheres to the concept of the Anthropocene, which seeks to recognise the “human signature” on the Earth’s geology and has raised vigorous and passionate international debate, the sheer scale of our massive reengineering of the surface of our planet is brought to light in astonishing perspective in this stunning documentary.

Spanning numerous countries, Anthropocene lays bare the gashes, wounds and irreparable marks of industrialisation and extraction, revealing how our mania for conquest defines our relationship to the Earth — and how we have created a global epidemic.

Beyond the Screen

The very concept of the Anthropocene as the new era we have hurtled the earth into is a hotly contested question, with significant political and ethical ramifications. 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, with guest Caroline Rance (Climate Campaigner, Friends of the Earth Scotland).

Screening with Hybrids.

Due to technical issues and despite our best efforts to resolve these, this screening will not have closed captions. We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause – if this means you are no longer able to attend the event, please get in touch with us at [email protected]
