Anthropocene: The Human Epoch is coming to Crave for Earth Day.
This cinematic project premieres on world television and streaming on Saturday, April 20 at 9 p.m. ET, followed by a re-air on Earth Day at 10 p.m. ET on Bell Media’s Crave.
Anthropocene: The Human Epoch chronicles the massive and irreversible impact of humans on the Earth — on a geological scale.
David Burtynsky, Jennifer Baichwal, and Nicholas de Pencier document species extinction (the burning of elephant tusks to disrupt the illegal trade of ivory), technofossils (swathes of discarded plastic forming geological layers), and terraforming (mines and industrial agriculture) in this multidisciplinary body of work.
The award-winning Anthropocene Project includes exhibitions, a film, and a book featuring a range of essays by artists, curators, and scientists as well as photographs.
It has been nominated for two Canadian Screen Awards, screened at multiple film festivals, including the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival and the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, and earlier this year was named Best Canadian Film by the Toronto Film Critics Association.
Anthropocene: The Human Epoch will stream on Saturday, April 20 at 9 p.m. ET, followed by a re-air on Monday, April 22 at 10 p.m. ET on Bell Media’s Crave channel.
