A meditative, grandoise feat in filmmaking that rivals the visually stunning cult classics like Koyaanisqatsi and Samsara, ANTHROPOCENE takes you to the far corners of the world you have never seen before and into the vast impact made by humans on earth - some unbelievably beautiful, and others, downright brutal.

Narrated by Alicia Vikander, the film showcases the beauty and horror of man-made or altered landscapes, from psychedelic potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains, to metal festivals in the closed city of Norilsk, to the devastated Great Barrier Reef in Australia and surreal lithium evaporation ponds in the Atacama desert. In the middle of the sixth great extinction, ANTHROPOCENE is a timely, and visually breathtaking, reminder of ecological devastation wrought by modern human civilization.
